Where is everyone today?

Steve continues regardless, another Cambridgeshire Loop which clearly works very well for him.

Go Steve!

From his Facebook pages this morning

A massive thank you goes out to MK Cycling (http://www.mk-cycling.com) the mobile bike mechanic service who attended to Steve's two ailing bikes at just an hour's notice. The broken tri-bars have now been replaced on one bike and the failed bottom bracket on the other. The show goes on...

I assume that given he has three bikes, this has not had any direct effect on his opportunity to ride today. Good on MK Cycling to fix the others though.

I thought Steve had a bike shop in MK servicing the bikes on a set rotation ???  Another supporter pulled out it looks like.  They who are easily found by a search but shall not be mentioned by name are no longer listed on Steves Sponsors page.

No, Stripes are still sponsoring.  They have moderately long leads times and stuff needed doing at short notice,  so Idai's mechanic stepped in.

Yes, as the editor of the sponsor page I have no idea what you mean.

Back to commenting on Steve, I see that he has changed his route back into MK tonight.


A change is as good as a rest, isn't it

Well if he goes west tomorrow he might encounter me zig-zagging up and down Worcestershire and Gloucestershire on a DIY 200.
You're only as successful as your last 1200...

Thanks Ian, I sit happily corrected.
