I intended to go out for a long run today however when my biking buddy said that he was free to fix my bike ... my plans changed! So, with the much appreciated help from my biking buddy, the broken cable from new year's eve is now sorted. Thank you Nick.
Went out for a 17 mile off-road ride to check it out and make sure all ok, before I go on a 30-ish mile ride tomorrow with the Brighton Explorers Club (www.brightonexplorers.org).
I've been meaning to join the club for years yet kept myself so busy I never had (or is that ... made!!) the time. Now I'm making the time and the first ride I'm joining them on is tomorrow on road. Looking forward to it!
