from clean bikes to muddy ones...

 Sunday morning started colourful in Drongan
 but soon went grey even before we got to Glasgow
 and followed the motorway past the Falkirk mermaid on our way to Dunfermline
 where it was muddy
 and got even wetter and muddier by the senior race...
 we were being pit crew with a spare bike and water and brush...every other lap or so our rider changed bike for a clean one...
and this is some wood on the outside of the building..Fife College provided the race HQ.

A long day, 160 miles travelling, but good to see and help friends

How good to have a clean(er) bike to switch out. What a grueling exercise.

A friend of ours just finished the Ironman triathlon. I'm in awe of him and of your cycling!

Thank you for checking in on my blog and congratulations on your new grandaughter! My sister's oldest son became a father on the 9th. too --- all the way down in Sydney, Australia. A little girl......Exciting times.

Hmm - that weathered painted wood. It has me thinking about pot decoration. How's it going on that front?
