7am appointment with Jase to go turf the Dark Side, and the first test of the day was that it was raining - bah! It didn't last long though. Had fun whizzing around, with Jase pointing out a couple of places where we can shave off a bit of effort. We parted company in the Laighills so that he could tag Janine for her morning walk, only for me to bump into Ben & Josie who had sadly just blocked out Barbush - c'est la vie. We headed out up to Kippendavie and then I decided to extend out up the hill a bit. Oops, uphill slog - but the sun came out and it was so nice at the top that I decided to swing back down the Lendrick trail. Glad I did as my Staminator medal popped up :-). Slight route amend when back down in town as stoker was out, so I came back through the Hydro and gave RoodWalking my second handshake of the day! Back OK. Knee, mostly OK. Definitely on the mend! Still lying down to type this, mind you.
Hmm, when fitting new mudguards, noticed that I've bust a spoke on my rear wheel - bums. The bike might be up to gravelling but the wheels not so much.

Morning stroll to get me over 150k points. I hadn't re-taped my knees since taking the old tape off yesterday, and they certainly felt it. Think I'm going to have to just keep them slathered in physio tape until, well, forever!

Long lunch break trying out a route for turfing in the town. Not bad, a couple of adjustments will make it more like 1h 20. The gravel tyres continue to impress - the bike is now also good in mud and even tussocky fields, whilst still being very nippy on the roads! Wish I'd changed years ago.

Testing out my new gravel tyres... and they're awesome. More awesome than the rider, but I did manage to achieve my secondary aim of the ride and bag my Eager Weasel turf medal. Pretty much all at Roger's expense... Sorry Rog.
