Over in Lanzarote at the moment and took on a bit of a tour type ride yesterday. 55km of very very strange terrain. Rocks and lunar landscapes like you'd not believe. The last 10km turned into a three man race. Edward from Holland being my main competition. We swapped and changed position three times on a hell of a climb back up to mid point of a large volcano. In the end though I powered away from him. Heart rate was over 175 for 20mins ha ha.
Riding on the volcanic rock is most alien, grip but also very out of control. Madness.
I was riding a Ghost asr 69 I think. Full suspension and cross country geometry. Pretty nice.
Had a epic crash! ! On the road !
Was trying something I'd seen on YouTube which was to lower and raise seat post on the fly. Ended up pulling the wrong brake as in Europe they're reversed and went over the bars! Lots of blood and cups and bruises ha ha.
