Just an update.....

 
The Felt on a day ride...
 After the longest break from the blog that I have had since it was started over five years ago I thought that I would give you a bit of an update.....

With all the good weather we have had recently there has been plenty of opportunity to get out on the bikes,,,,,,, lots of full days on the Felt which is always a pleasure to ride.....
My Daughter and her family taking a break.......
 I managed to get out on the MTB for a great ride in the New Forest with my Daughter and her family.....
My grandsons are so competitive..... I wonder where they get that from..?
The MTB  at a Canadian War Memorial in the New Forest...
 I have also been putting some miles on the MTB in preparation for my 'bikepacking' trip which is due to start in a couple of days time..... Unfortunately the current nice weather looks set to change a day or two after we set out on the ride....on the plus side of course it might well make the ride more pleasurable if its a bit cooler, so long as any rain isn't too heavy.....
Anne checking out a motorhome...this one is too small

Also over the past few months Anne and I have been checking out lots of motorhomes..but it seems that we are both set on The Autotrail Apache that I showed you a picture of in my last post..... We still have a few months to make our final decision.....

When I get back from the MTB bikepacking trip I will post up pictures and let you know how it all went.....
After years of  long distance road touring this will be my first offroad multiday ride and I am looking forward to it....

Hi Trevor,
So good to have you back and posting.
Looks like you are enjoying your time riding in a spirited fashion and on family rides (they may be more spirited, who knows, eh? :) ). MTB rides can be fun, especially if you want to stay off the main paths for a bit.

Anyhow, have lots of fun on your bike packing trip and I will look forward to your post with pics and all.

Take care and have a lot of fun!

Peace :)

You know what they say: " Get a motorhome and become a star on Top Gear!" Good luck in choosing one.

A condo on wheels.
The real question is: what color are you going to paint it?
