Kerb crawlers

Also “fondly” known as Chutney.

Yes they do look beautiful, wonderful colours and are just begging to be kicked about. Though do be careful: if they are wet they are as good as an ice rink. After a fall a few years ago where these little blighter took the front wheel away and I came down hard, wet leafs are now known as Chutney. Because of the mango coloured bicycle I was on was called that and the mess I have hit looked a bit like some too.

The only bad part is …

… when you ride your bicycle with a Brooks B17 you can’t enjoy looking at the works of art it is.

A few weeks ago I got a new honey coloured Brooks saddle, which have since then been changing colour. I really loved it as it came out of the box, but after each ride it has darkened a little bit. And each day the new colour, along with the copper rails, makes it look even better.

Autumn vs. Fall

Autumn vs. Fall

This is a bit like the old tomato, aluminium and nike etc. thing. I say fall because the leafs are falling or is it because my English teacher picked the US version or because I have watched too many US sitcoms. But if it is the latter, why the heck do I say all the other words in the Queen English?

Anywhoo, what ever you call it, I’m about to bore you a bit with some photos of the season.
