Monday Morning Debrief 95

by 6

Yes yes, we know, it’s not morning anymore. But we’ve had some very important business to attend to this morning.

Office copies have arrived!

Now we’re done sniffing the latest issue, we’re ready to talk about what we got up to at the weekend. But first a tune. Let’s have some engine noise. You’ll see why soon enough.

My weekend did not involve bike riding, but it did involve a spot of wild camping with the kids. I took advantage of the fact that I was down to only two children (my husband being away watching cricket), so we had a local adventure into the woods. Since nobody needed a wild poo and the first aid kit was not deployed, I’m going to call it a success.

OK, I admit to being a bit scared.

Wil went out for a ride. Here he is looking very scared by a bog.

Is Wil worried he will get those shoes dirty?

Wil does not eat cake, so he took a picture of someone else’s cake. There are probably laws about that.

Cake
How can anyone ‘not eat cake’?

Chipps also went out for a ride, and took this shot of Beate riding through the heather, which is on tip top form right now. Beate, of course, is always on tip top form.

Yay, a dry ride!

Chipps has got himself a new car. Apparently it cost him five guitars and two amps.

Please provide your own captions. We have made ourselves cry coming up with some.

Andi has also got a new car, but he hasn’t got any pictures of it yet. But this is his old car that he’s swapping it for.

Is there a tartan rug and a flask on the back seat?

I know nothing about cars, and am only interested in their bike carrying capacity. Which makes both of these very low scorers. However, I understand that some people think a car can add to your sex appeal. I’m not prepared to comment on whether either of these are working for me. But you should feel free to comment below.

In a switch from our usual format, we didn’t bring you a Fresh Goods Friday Live, but we did do a grand unboxing of some Trickstuff gear that landed last week. Get your peepers round this.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    And James & I were racing hard at ‘Ard Rock 🙂 Epic weekend.

    Fabulous car, Chipps, just as well you have a bike for when you go to the shops.

    just going back to the cake, which would you choose? chocolate is my favourite, but the sponge looks really good ,I think I would have to eat both.

    Chips’ new car shows excellent taste…. but Andi’s old car is the bee’s knees.

    Wish I’d know he was selling (or swapping?) it!

    @Pz_Steve sorry, she will be heading to her new home this evening (sniff) 🙁 , but at least I’ll have something new to play with 😀
