I’ve been fearsomely quiet over the last few weeks so I thought I’d better poke my head out of the den and give the blog a wee update.
The reasons for my silence are manifold. First, and with wonderful comic timing, I got bad flu two weeks before Christmas, which put paid to any cycling in the run up to the festivities. As I began to recover, the snow and ice came with a vengence, rendering the local roads pretty unrideable. So, as a result, the bike has been sitting, forlorn, beneath the stairs, wondering if it’s ever going to spin its wheels again. My legs are no doubt wondering the same thing.
Good news is that the recent thaw has cleared the roads, so a cheeky evening spin may be on the cards this very night. This will also be a great excuse to road-test my recently acquired (thanks Tom and Sam) Fenix E21 light.
Initial off bike impressions are very good. The torch is beautifully made and fearsomely bright, even on low power mode. Looking forward to pointing the bike somewhere dark and seeing how it performs. The beam pattern looks excellent, with nice bright centre spot and a very even halo of light surrounding it.
I’ll keep you posted.
