To Woodlands and Mandai, 48 km. This is the first Wed night ride for 2004 (I hear nothing happened in the past few weeks). J shows up on his Titus with 2.1 inch knobbies. I try to draft him as he charges up the slopes at 43 km/h. It's a lost cause. My Cateye tells me the average speed for the ride is 26 km/h. We break as usual at Casuarina Road. The management of our usual haunt has changed; no more Milo!
Tech note J and I compare bike noises. His seatpost squeaks. I still don't know what causes my drivetrain to clink. J makes some suggestions: these aren't home remedies.
