W/Ending 1st July

On the school run this morning it felt like there's some good wind about!
Super warm already and felt like enough to look forward to a session later if this holds out.

Malverns classic MTB festival

Just popped in to my local bike shop and the owner mentioned that the festival is on this weekend for the first time in 20 years. I figure it's a long shot even mentioning it because the wind is finally back this weekend but on the off chance somebody out there is interested: https://www.malvernscla...

Olympics 2024

Usual thing, POLITICS and large greedy corporations....the bigger the brand the bigger the politics. Sport then takes a second place.
