Took the new bike - Claud Butler Hybrid type - Down to Newcastle and back. went via Dundrum and home through Castlewellan.
It was a beautiful day, the warm sunshine made up for the cool breeze coming from the coast. I called in at Greg's to collect the 6 controls he lifted after the LongO - strapped them to my rucsac and headed for the hills.
The return home was hard, the controls were heavy and the climbs were sweaty, I think I worked out the cause of my hamstring prob though.
It may be related to a sciatic problem on the right side.
Lots of cyclists out today, even on the back roads. On the climb up Ballywillwill rd I passed a young fella who had been dropped by some unseen pack - he was weaving all over the place and in obvious distress.
Real happy with the new bike - Its strong and smooth, I don't think I will do much off road with it though.
Time down to Newcastle - 49.12mins (24.26km)
