Early training


Just thought I’d drop you a line and send a picture to let you know I’m still loving my new King of Mercian bike from 2013. I’ve ridden over 3000 miles, mostly commuting and winter training and love the feel of the bike. So much that I couldn’t stand riding my old aluminium frame any more and sold it on eBay. So now I have just the two bikes - a carbon fibre bike for racing and summers, and the Mercian for all other times. Plus it doubles as a baby-chariot too (see photo!). Maybe when the carbon fibre bike inevitably wears out in a few years I’ll buy another Mercian for racing and go all-steel… 

Hope you are all well and hope to see you again in the future

Best regards

Mark
