#650 bike bits

I gave my track bike a birthday:
It’s got a new pair of Tufo Tubular Tyres,
a new pair of MKS GR-9 Platform Pedals
and a new pair of Classic Handlebars.
All in pairs . . . .

#642 Red Cabbage & Apple Sauerkraut.

My Red Cabbage & Apple Sauerkraut.
Apparently we have to wait three weeks for it to ferment.
(it’s not doing much at the moment).

#627 Belgium

We went to Ghent:
We visited SMAK the museum of modern art
We watched Day 4 of the Ghent Six Day bike race.

Short video of one of the events where the riders are each paced by a Derny motor bike. It's the last few laps and Mark Cavendish is 4th but can't get through to win, so he's waving his arms in disgust, at 60 kph!

#622 Ghent Six Day

We've got tickets for the Friday of the Ghent Six Day in Belgium.

(It's a cycle race in a velodrome that lasts six day, they don't race all day and all night (they used to year's ago) now it's *just* an evening session each day).


















Now a bonus, Mark Cavendish is down to ride!
