The time is getting near, nights are drawing in and very shortly I will have to return to work. A few months down in Cannes, maybe even 6 or more. Should be a mild winter with plenty of mountains around for the good old (rather new actually) carbon fibre mountain bike.
Talking of which, I hit Cannock Chase this morning on a very sneaky dawnie session. Sadly it was wet so was never going to be a blistering time but I did manage to make and upload a quick video of my antics on the newly refurbished ‘Lower Cliff’ run – by far the best red run at Cannock. Video is over in the section called ‘Videos’ strangely enough. Look for the title ‘Lower Cliff – Cannock Chase’ and you will not only be amazed at my riding skills but also my depth of music taste in selecting a suitable backing track.
This week I also managed to sell my old Specialized mountain bike. Way back in 2011 I paid $2300 for that beauty and have managed to secure a rather impressive $1260 for it now – not too shabby for a bike that is as well-travelled and used as that one.
Money is already in the bank, just waiting for the dude to come and pick it up.
This monster is called a ‘Fly Agaric Toadstool’ – apparently abundant in the UK but its the first time I have seen one.
from the same family but different shape although this one is a mushroom apparently. Whats the difference between a mushroom and a toadstool? if you believe ‘wisegeek’ – nothing at all, apparently the names are interchangeable. Some believe mushrooms are edible, toadstools are toxic but that isn’t the case.
Look at me, getting all botanical on your asses !
