Barney is away this week having Big Fun on assignment somewhere far, far away. Which leaves the rest of us here in Singletrack Towers trying not to feel churlish about it. Especially as it’s deadline week (issue 103 went off to the printers yesterday, subscribe here if you’d like it delivered to the comfort of your living room. Or maybe just the hallway, unless you’re very friendly with your postie). So, us left-behind-not-off-on-amazing-press-campers are cheering ourselves with the little things in life. Like peanut butter Oreos and some nearly out of date Blue Ribands that Chipps was given by his vet. Yes, the second half of that sentence raises all kinds of unanswered questions. However, none is so great nor the answers nearly so interesting as finding out what bicycling treats have come through our doors this week, so without further ado, it’s Fresh Good Friday.

And finally, we know how much you liked our previous Alpkit merino review. So, for your delight, our designer Rob models the Alpkit Kepler Velo Short Sleeved 100% merino jersey. Designed to be worn either as a baselayer or as a jersey in its own right, it has cycle specific features including a zipped pocket on the rear and gripper elastic in the rear hem.
For some reason that picture of Rob puts us in mind of this..
And there we have it. Barney will be back next week. At least we think he will. We haven’t actually heard from him since he went off to Far Far Away. We’re assuming this is due to a lack of wi-fi rather than a hostage situation that we don’t yet know about. If we’re back next week with a crowdfunding appeal, you’ll know it wasn’t a wi-fi outage after all. Barney, wherever you are, please come back soon. We love you, and we’ve run out of waffle.
