Winter is hanging on..

The wind here is "Baltic" !!
We've had two days of shortish rides and had hoped to get a ride on different roads yesterday.
The bike shop in West Calder had organised a day of rides, including e-bike tryouts, stalls from half a dozen manufacturers,including childrens' bikes, plus the Paris-Roubaix professional race on screen in the a coffee cart!
The wind was so strong and cold the bikes stayed in the car!

Apparently the bike shop is in what was originally the West Calder Cooperative Society's building....very impressive!
If anyone hasn't found out...Philippe Gilbert won the Paris-Roubaix race.

Also a Flahute is apparently a Flandrian's real Flandrian....
