Okay bit more bling added to the Voodoo, just small red accents. Just waiting for the chain ring bolts and the pedal pegs in red then it's done. When I wear out other parts will get a red front chain ring ans red cassette bolt.
Here's the taster and when I wash it tomorrow I'll post more pics...
First time out since the restrictions have been relaxed over here, as before we were restricted to one time out per day for exercise withing 1 KM of our house, I took a nice slowish ride alone the coast to Paphos Harbour, then onto a beach in Yeroskipou, not far from Paphos Airport.
I did about 30KM round trip, as I am surprised how unfit I got in a matter of weeks, It was a nice warm day, below some pictures of my trip.
It's great to have found this one. Spoke to a bloke on a Haibike who stated that the trails are usually very quiet (although busier at the moment) and they go all sorts of ways. Some I sort of knew about, but others we will continue to discover tomorrow.
I had a great ride to work cross country, although I came across many more people than I am used to. I wonder if they will still be out there when the lock down is over. I was riding between about 08:50 and 10:00, and did my longer summer route that had dried out now. First day back at work since the 17th of April.
Probably about 16 miles to work off road and 10 miles home on the road. My mileage has crept up to 11.978, very close now to cracking the 12,000 mile barrier, and all on the original 400Wh battery that uses the same amount of its capacity getting me to work and back now embarking on its 6th year that it did when it was new.
Looks a lovely day for it GH.
I did another 22 miles today, but no pics I'm afraid. Didn't go discover the other part to that ride, went on more roads today specifically as we knew it would be busier the other way.
The joys of variable shift start times. Yesterday I started work at 11:00 and today I started at 20:00. Tomorrow my start time is 14:48 but sitting at home with my phone switched on, hoping not to be called upon.
I should not complain as so many people are enduring financial armageddon, and I enjoyed seeing my work colleagues and doing a job I enjoy. On both days my time at work was much shorter than normal.
I did wonder if there was enough time for my battery to charge back up. It did, and my off road route in was 14 miles, but I only use eco and that 14 miles had only used 25% of my battery. By the time I got home I had reached another milestone, I have now broken through the 12,000 mile barrier, now standing at 12,002 miles.
We had some big heath land fires in Surrey in 2015 and do get them every now and then and although the area effected looks devastated immediately afterwards it forms part of a natural renewal cycle. Though sometimes arson comes into play. As part of my job I traveled close to one of the worst effected areas of about 75 acres and was amazed how bad it looked and equally how fast it recovered.
Seems weird posting from home while technically at work. Weird in a good way!
I have to say I have loved the videos of your rides I have seen chargeriderepeat. They look like they take quite a while to put together, filming, editing and music. You obviously have some expertise in that area?
Another splendid 24 mile round trip to work and back.
I pass a beautiful mansion on one of my bridal paths with associated staff houses and when the gardening team are working they occasionally leave a garden gate open that gives a glimpse of the splendid garden.
And the summer route passes another big house invisible from the path but they keep a couple of pigs and their enclosure is next to the path I ride. Got to love a pig.
Found some more new paths, all quiet, wasn't sure if I was allowed in the woods so will try find out if it's private, I did behave and didn't go too far incase I was chased off by an angry farmer.
Bike now all lovely and clean, chain off and lubed, suspension all lubed, bolt check and now in bed.....
