Just bought one of these cycle tyre pumps - amazing!

I've found the normal style pumps wanting when trying to put 75-80 psi in my tyres. This one works a treat - all done in less than a minute!

Usual ability to swap between the two types of valve by changing around the two washer/gasket thingies in the connector at the end of the flexible tube (hope that makes sense!)

Hi Brendon,

320 km is 200 miles, - so that beats twice over my 100 miles in a day charity run I'm doing in September! It should be 160 miles over two days, but the first day, a Friday, I cannot do, so I am just joining the event for the 100 miles on day 2.

Details here

Good luck - I reckon I'll be all in after half the distance you will be doing!
Will you be looking to get sponsorship for a charity? If you are, then let me know and maybe we can do a swap sponsorship so that each of our charities benefit - I've just done this with Stevebsjb.

All the best
CF

Sounds painful and fun Brendan! The Mrs. and I are doing the MS150 and the Highlander this summer. The first is 100miles day one and 50 miles day two. The Highlander is "only" 100 miles but they work 10,000 feet of climbing in there.

Jesus!

The profile alone's enough to give you nightmares.

So, are you sponsoring any charities? - always on for a swap deal

I know you'll find this hard to believe, but I tried some off-road cycling last week. Not exactly planned from my side, but my pal who lives north west of London in the Chilterns proovided the route which he claimed 'had one or two small bits with grass or hard flint surface'.

Forget that description and replace it with 'several miles of muddy, deep-puddled, pot-holed terrain' and you're getting closer.

New bike performed well though and will cause me to do more of this sort of riding. To busy keeping my balance to take any photos of the rough stuff, but here are a couple to show the ups and downs of it all even if without the mud!
