Beginning with a hellish ride to Brighton with the boys back in March, this roll of film flicks sporadically through daytrips, bro rides and chill rolls. Shot blind on an Ilford XP2 single use black & white which lost it's viewfinder lens after the first exposure when the camera leapt out of my jersey pocket at speed onto the tarmac.
Despite it's tank-like good looks and almost-OD colourway, my do-most-things road/gravel/commuter/tourer bike is Swiss Army only in the sense that, like its iconic multi-too namesake, it can turn its hand to pretty much anything. Completely stock in these pics, I've just upgraded to some 105 bits after 9 months and over 4000km, as a little thank you for it being so lovely and reliable. Kinda heavy though, sorta feels like a tank sometimes too.
Taken on a FujiFilm disposable.
Took a long weekend to the country, expertly arranged by Mrs PR (thanks Jules x). As you'd expect for a holiday in Britain in February we got a soaking on a couple of occasions, but there was lots to like: multi-modal bike-train-bike journeys, cottage down dirt track, log fire, country pubs, ale, killer landscape, stars, golden hour stroll, overwhelming quaintness and, of course, good company.
BTW we were in Wedmore/Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, & credit for the pic of me obvs goes to the missus.
