Ride for Breakfast

Woke up real early to complete this ride before the Sun became too sorching hot for Missus to continue. And since we are at it, might as well head for breakfast.

Panoramic view of the neighbourhood. Soon, that piece of open land will make way for other developments.

Made our way slowly amd steadily for our breakfast of coffee, tea and pan fried Indian dough with curry called roti prata. Had a filling breakfast and we were on our way home.

Just a day earlier, I purchased a new water bottle. For this ride, I tested some of the recommendations given by fellow Brompton riders to secure the bottle using the velcro strap. It worked and did not come loose at all.

Bombardier. I like that name.

Endurance Ride from Town to Town

The day after installing the 54T and new front light mounting, I brought Citrus out for an endurance ride with the Missus. This ride will take us from our town to a neighbouring town via a newly constructed path.

Halfway through the journey, the path split into two and we took the one which led us to this dead end.

Took a selfie with the Missus while rehydrating. Once we rehydrated, we u-turned and took the other path.

Along the way, we saw tgese beautiful lallangs by the side of the path. Couldn’t resist posing our Bs next to these lallangs for an image.

As we had started late, the heat from the Sun became too scorching. We headed home after riding midway between both towns.

Upon reaching home, I realised that one of the bottles had dropped off the bottle cage. And it was the new one. Sigh. Looks like a purchase of another bottle is inevitable. Did some research and found that the design of the cages and bottles are crucial. In my case, the bottle did not have the necessary grooves for the cage to clamp onto.

Bearing that in mind, the hunt for another bottle became easier.
