First cycle after getting bike serviced

Happy days, that’s me got my bike after it went to Terry Wright Cycles last Thursday (8th March 2012) for a much needed service. It’s so nice having fully working front and back breaks again. I just need to watch, since for the last 3 months or so, only the front one was doing anything at all. If I used them now, I would be straight over the handlebars which would not be a good thing. They also renewed the gears, which had been jumping like mad. The service came to total of £111.98.

I will now leave you with statistics from today’s short bike ride.

Route statistics:-

  • Distance: 20.71 miles.
  • Time: 1:36:13 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 12.9 mph.
  • Max Speed: 30.6 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 245 meters.

  1. Nice one G! Bet you are well happy now you have fully working brakes and gears! I was expecting you to say something like £150, so am glad it wasn’t as much as that!

    Happy cycling!

    And I managed 7.46 miles today, an after work bike ride! Nice short one, took me all of 38 minutes!

  2. Looks like your service charge wasnt as bad as thought , the roads here are not too bad for bikes …. for cars not good , Elevation in my village about 400 m above sea level , walking the dogs 10 km a day keeps me fit ….. I do like the photos .
