Q4 is always an interesting one. Sprinkles of summer and lashings of winter in a single quarter pounder. From beaches to baseball in four months, via fat cats, planes and thingsonbenaston.com.
If you like Danny Macaskill, you’ll love this little bike ride around the UK. Martyn Ashton rides a Pinarello Dogma 2, £10k carbon road bike used by Team Sky’s Bradley Wiggins & Mark Cavendish to the max.
Funnily enough, it’s doing tricks like this that’s helped me break 3 x road bike frames in the last 3 x years. I’m obviously riding the wrong bike.
1 x new bike please.
I had a nice surprise in the post this week – a couple of mobile solar power chargers from http://www.mobilesolarchargers.co.uk .
At first I was a bit sceptical as to whether or not they’d actually work but they’re great. There’s a decent 6000Mah battery in it so when fully charged this bad boy can charge your phone 3 times or a tablet up to 75%. It’s perfect for sticking in your bag to ensure you’re never out of juice when you’re on the move.
The larger capacity battery takes quite a lengthy 48hrs to charge in bright sunlight but only 8hrs to charge plugged into the wall. This dual charging ability means it’s easy to top it up before you head out somewhere and then when you’re on the move you can keep topping it up with the sun!
If you’re someone who consistently finds themselves with a dead phone, out of juice, you should get one of these here.
