Progress…

Ok, the web page is making progress.  It seems to be a “two steps forward, one step back” kind of process, but if this post turns up I will take it as a win!

Edit: the post turned up! I’m taking that as a win, and from now on all of the new posts will be here! But now, I really need to go to bed.

It’s time…

So I think the time has finally come. Much as liked the idea of owning what I am sure would have been the only mountain bike in the world to have podiumed in MTB, triathlon and road racing, as well as completing all three of the grand tours, I don’t think it will happen. I am thinking it is time to give the poor old mountain bike a break, and try something new. Right now, I am thinking that something new will look a little bit like this.

It would be nice if it at least starts out looking like this, before I modify it to suit...

Call me soft if you want, but I say today is a day for indoor training!

Today, I say it is just cruel to your bike to take it outside. So it isn’t really for me, but more for my bike that I will be doing most of my training this week inside

It seems…

That I can even compose posts while offline. That is a great help!

This is not the bike I will be riding for the Giro!

That means that even when I am in the middle of a mountain range with no signal, I will still be able to write! Hopefully then I will also be able to upload it later…

Fantastic Posting Action!

Here is the first post using the great new WordPress app. I’m hoping it will make posting things so much easier… It inserts pics,

A fun little climb - note the black thing, which is the removable leg of my pants, lying on the ground behind the bike. I looked for that for ages when I got home, then noticed it here and figured out what happened...

Seems to be easy, and even formatting isn’t at all hard. Pretty happy so far, will see if posting works, and editing!
