More Mods.

Picked up a Kamoya Jenny Suspension Block with extra hard red elastomer and a pair of Kamoya Hinge Clamps from the local distributor.

Had always wanted the Jenny to replace the stock Brompton firm suspension block for a firmer ride to reduce the bouncing of the B.

How Jenny looks after installation.

That night, brought the Bs out for an evening ride and stopped by a local seller of satay, pieces of meat skewered onto sticks and barbecued over fire.

The ride with the Jenny installed was so much better than when it was on the stock firm suspension block. Definitely worth the upgrade.

B as a Training Bicycle?

Our nephew wanted to pick up cycling. Having only the Bromptons and a Montague TX, we used one of the Bromptons for him to practice on.

Removed both pedals and his first lesson was to learn how to balance on a 2-wheeler.

More lessons for him in the weeks to come.

Missus First Ride of 2014……and After 6 Weeks

Missus had not been well 3 weeks prior to our trip to South Korea for 3 weeks. So in all, she had not been cycling for 6 weeks. So time to get some distance on her Dr Seuss.

image

Cycled to another town for breakfast, a good 8.5km away. Had some Burger King and off we went on our return home.

image

Some posing before heading off.

image

Along the way home, we detoured to visit a hot spring which was near our home. A place which we have never visited although Missus and I have been living in this area for more than a decade and a half.

image

Found a toad who was admiring Citrus.

Information about this hot spring.

Going to revisit this gorgeous place some time soon.

First Night Ride of 2014

2014’s first ride happens to be a night ride. Dropped off Missus at a friend’s house for a gathering and headed off for a ride to a nearby jetty.

image

Very few vehicles that night and had a great time on the road, although the conditions of the road leave much to be desired.

image

Finally reached the jetty after a slow ride. Enjoying the cool sea breeze before heading back to pick the Missus up.
