Chameleon Single Speed Rivington

Same route as yesterday, but with added "Oh great the bloody wind's back again"-ness.

0.1mph faster average speed and more excitedly my back was A O K for the whole ride, which is a pity for everyone else around Rivi as now you'll have to wait until I'm sick or broken again to have even the slightest chance of beating my up a hill. (or when I get my new bike* and I'm getting used to it)

*OH!, I'm getting a new bike.**

** and not the one I mentioned a few weeks back***

*** If I did actually mention it.

I don't think I'd break it, but, ali's not that springy and the I think springyness is required around here, now, certainly the chameleon batters me to the within and inch of my sanity most rides at the moment.
