Lympstone and back 2016-11-05 A windy ride round to Lympstone and back. Back on the Marin after its trip to the LBS for a new rear wheel. Not a happy bike - gear change was really sloppy, the chain came off and the rear brake rubbed. No wonder it all felt such hard work. Stopped at the Swing Bridges to watch them open to let yachts up to the canal basin.

Devon hills and broken gears 2018-01-22 After tree felling stopped LIz and I cycling along the Exe cycle path, we thought we go inland and "do some hills". The aim was to come back via Dawlish. At the top of a particularly long and steep hill I went to change gear and there was no gear lever! We eventually found it near the bottom of the very long, steep hill. Devon is no place to cycle when stuck in top gear.
