New Mudguards

I bought some SKS Race Mudguards for my road bike, which are clip on ones easier to fit, and a better fit than my Crud ones. I've fixed them on but haven't given them a proper road test yet. I've also been comparing the weight of my road and hybrids with pannier rack, mudguards, lock and full wedge saddlebag and the road is 12 kg compared with 15 kg for the hybrid. So on a touring trip with luggage it would make sense to use the road bike. I'd quite like to do a tour round France or somewhere one day.

Short Cycle in Shorts

I went for a 15 mile ride last Sat in the mild November sun in shorts and jersey. Today and yesterday I was back in winter tights and jacket on my daily commute.
