The ride home last night along the cut was very wet but pretty good fun, the canal due to the weather was virtually empty of folk even through Brindley Place in the City Centre, so I could get a lick on.
On the kit front my Endura overshoes have let me down. The zip on my left shoe has completely broken off, this is after the plastic bit you pull the zips with broke off a few weeks back. This happened on both zips. So I've had to dig out my Porelle Dry Socks that I've had for years. They do keep my feet dry but I've always found them a tad too tight and my feet tend to get cold, probably because of the tightness of the socks I'm guessing.
I've been doing a bit of research on pumps and so far I'm thinking the Topeak Mountain Morph Pump. I've arrived at this one reading the reviews and looking at actual ease of inflation. Anyone got any better suggestions?
Oh, and I've lost my Hi Vis daysack cover, I reckon the Spawn of Satan has hidden it somewhere, but in his 2 year old crafty way he is denying all knowledge of it...
