OK, as promised...crap photos of Jake

Just some photos I took this afternoon. However technical problems meant I soon had to return home. The SPD pedals completely FROZE and I wasn't able to clip in because both the cleats and pedals were blocked by ice!

I've even thought about looking for a North-East sportive rides of around 50 miles in length to keep fit and strong. So, the Richmond 3 Dales ride is a looking good if I can get the courage up ;-)

Hello 2010 - meet my new friend...Jake the Snake

Yep, I bought a new bike. A beautiful blue Kona Jake the Snake cyclocross.

And yes as usual, on the first ride I got 2 punctures due to the soft cyclocross tyres rubbers. So, I'm going to have to buy some Schwalbe marathon plus tyres that should protect the delicate inner tubes from the glass.

Picture and possible video to follow ;-)
