January 7th – This mud. It’s getting worse. It’s in everything, like a damaging, abrasive jelly, corroding metal, clogging up mechanisms and generally bringing the bike down.
I felt I should wash the bikes to remove the worst, so I did at the weekend. I was kind of scared of what I might find underneath.
2 days on an it’s like they were never cleaned at all.
It’s going to take a lot of work to get these steeds back up to scratch this spring. I’ll have my work cut out, clearly.
I expect whole biomes will be developing in the crud by then.
Oh the mud, what larks…
