It was quite wet. No wind problems.OK, today's utility ride is in direct support of my tin box.
The other day, the wondrous piece of silicon that is the main ECU detected the death of the two rear ABS sensors. In efficient German fashion, it decided the car was now completely unroadworthy (as opposed to the reality of being reduced to being a 'normal' cheaper vehicle), and shut the car down almost completely.
It did not put the engine into limp mode, but the transmission instead. This left me with a fourteen mile drive in 1st gear...
The quote for the work was £604, £220 of which was the two sensors. WTF? Found a reasonable quality pair on the bay of E for £36, and I'll be delivering them today, by bike.
The weather looks crap, it's not a bike I'm that happy with in slippy conditions, etc, etc. But if I used my bus pass, there's still 2 miles to walk, so I'd get just as wet.
Bike it is, then!
8.7mph ave. 30.99 miles. 2481ft elev gain.
Not particularly enjoyable, but it needed to be done.
