|Wheel and bearing maintenance ahead of the weekend|
SUNDAY: Partly Cloudy 67/51F 0% chance of rain
OK, so on Sunday (still shattered from our week in Butlins and the drive back from Skegness), I fitted a fresh set of LOADED 'Jehu' bearings into the aluminium core Orangatang 'In Heat' wheels (75mm 80A), ahead of the 100 mile journey this weekend.
After that I had a quick roll on the board, just a couple of miles to see how I got on with the inserts in. A bit wobbly to be honest. It will take some getting used to the new 'shape' of my foot on the 'W' concave of the Landyachtz 'Switchblade' board that I'm using, but it will be fine.
Today I'm off to see Twellsy, to try and finalise arrangements for him to follow me on his bike this weekend, and help me document the journey.
Then tonight I've got more e mails to send, and stuff to update on the blog and facebook pages etc. and I need to start getting all my gear ready for the weekend too. Lots to do.
