It’s been way too long since I last posted to the blog and equally as long since I took the bike for a long trip. A combination of laziness, a really wet Irish winter/spring and wonky knees has restricted my time on the bike . Hopefully within the next few weeks I’ll get a chance to get pedalling again.
In the mean time I hope to repair a crooked vintage New Hudson bike, complete with an old Wrights leather saddle, I bought in a junk yard in Cork city.

And maybe I can also show you how to look out for free food while out on your bike.
So now that I’ve said it, I have to go and do it!
