What a day! The team met at 0830hrs although Alistair was still slightly worst for wear after a monster session last night. The 'beast' (The Bike) was woken from its slumber and taken out for a spin. It was a gorgeous morning - slight headwind and very bright, great conditions to see what the bike could do. Our aim was to cycle the 40 miles to Crosby and back.
We learnt a great deal - starting - stopping - changing gears and negotiating traffic lights. Wow does this machine shift. Costa Coffee in Crosby provided a suitable stop over and then we headed back via Formby Cycles. Those bike boys were impressed.
The day concluded with a PR walk about Southport were we met up with Joanne and Jonathan's kids (Edward, Bertie and Kitty). The rest of the time we handed out business cards and chatting to people about how mad we must be. Another top day but much learnt. 40 miles - sore bums!
