Kampong Kaki Circuit, 62 km. Having "trained" in Laos, I wanted to break my personal best time on the circuit. But the only thing that breaks is more bits from my cycling shoe, which has taken a pounding since end-2003 and 28,000 km. Another item that took a pounding for four years (and similar distance) is my rear hub, which had grease packed into and tightened yesterday, so that it's no more a woebegone wobbling wheel. A simple shoe isn't made to be fixed, a precision instrument like a hub is, and complex human relations come without manuals.
