Well thats what to gloom and doom mongers are saying so it would have been rude not to take advantage of it. Out on the Commando today, brunch at the excellent Picnic cafe in South Queensferry then a run past Knockhill to Powmill for more tea and some strawberries and cream. The roads around Knockhill (Scotland main race circuit) are shockingly bad, the surface has been fixed for most of the way but the amount of muck on the roads left by tractors is verging on criminally irresponsible. I understand farmers have to work but don't leave half your fields on the roads! and if its unavoidable some signs would be good, the police of course should take some responsibility but obviously don't! I expect it to be bad and ride accordingly but not everyone will be aware of the hazards and it could easily lead to problems.
Spotted this chain (on a Morini, bottom picture) and it wins the award for most neglected chain this week (its usually mine!)
