Just before I start to blog crap and ramble on; I took my Fuji mountain bike to Evans Cycles in Birmingham to get it serviced and they have done a great job. I took it later than the six weeks they usually like it to be delivered and apparently I’ve done a few more miles than the usual new comer to cycling but after stripping it down and rebuilding it, it feels fantastic! Highly recommend Evans for their selection and customer service.
Commuting to work on my bike is starting to get a bit boring so a friend and I sat thinking (over a beer … or two) and threw some ideas up about where we could go which neither of us have gone before. After considerable banter, put downs and general chat we came up with the idea of following the West Midlands canal waterways around Birmingham and the surrounding areas. Now looking through the inter-web I have learnt that the system of waterways reaches Wolverhampton (dive), Telford (not bad) & obviously runs throughout Brum. So the plan tomorrow is to meet up at an opening and basically see where it takes us.
