Obvious! Sun 25th Sept 16

After years of looking and longing (and possibly a little coveting), I have finally bought myself a road bike. After removing the bike from its box and attaching the seat, wheels and handlebars it only seemed sensible to give it a spin. So to my family’s disgust, I donned my...
