Sneaking a quick one
By Nick | 15, Feb, 2008
Jim and I had a meeting in Llanberis (nudge, nudge, wink, wink…more of this soon). On the way back we managed to get a little product testing in, well to be honest it was a bit of jolly, and had the meeting gone on any longer it would of been good plan, gone wrong. So at 4.00pm we found ourselves at Swallow Falls car park with two bikes and the Marin Trail just across the river. Neither of us had done the Marin Trail, and we didn’t have a map, but we asked some other guys that were also setting up their bikes and they pointed us in the right direction. Optimistically they seemed to think that we could do it before it got dark, the first uphill paid to that idea, along with the chip butty from Petes Eats that was giving me stitch. So we just stayed on the trail until it was just turning dark and headed back.
It was good to sneak a quick one in, it would of felt very weird to have left N. Wales without doing something.
I guess I should say what I was testing, well…. Gourdon 20 - Sometimes the elastic annoys me but other than that it keeps doing what it says on the tin.
