Mud Pug

Sometimes ride opportunities present themselves in the day like breaks in the cloud.

And so it was today. After yesterday’s gales and rain, it was still and calm this afternoon. So the newly shod Peugeot had its maiden voyage.

The results, with cross tyres pumped to 50psi, were impressive. It ploughed through deep sticky mud like a tractor, never clogging up, the tread shedding mud quickly and never getting bogged.

It was quick on the road too, rolling with ease to and from the country park.

On my travels I saw squirrels, donkeys, horses, cattle and an unidentified bird of prey. In all, a resounding success, followed by about an hour of bike cleaning.

Due to riding single speed for over a year, once aboard a geared bike I never shifted once!
