After a week of many punctures around Manchester I decided it was time to upgrade my 15 year old tyres to new ones. Had a few suggestions from friends and ended up getting a set of Schwalbe Marathon Plus (26×1.5) tyres. The decision was made on the basis that most of my riding is done on the road now and the little off road I do tends to be on cycle paths and the such.
Had the opportunity this evening to get along to the last Freedom Principle, at least the last one at Sandbar.
So rode home from Willslow via Manchester airport an enjoyable ride and means that I have know riden the whole of the Manchester Airport Orbital route in two sessions.
Last Saturday I enjoyed a trip to the Manchester Opera House to see The 39 Steps. A comedy version of the Alfred Hitchcock classic. Was very, very funny with the small cast of 4 (plus a ninth hand) giving a great showing, I think my highlight was the scene on the train, in which even Durham got a brief mention! Plan to do more theatre trips in the future.
