Day 1 - Mike put up with my slow riding and didn't fall asleep. Explained the simplicity of the system and attempted to get me to do it. Brave effort. Day 2 - Zig Zag Hill .... PANTS that's my riding not Mike's tuition. Although mine stayed white throughout the decent. Day 3 - Mike had to wind me up about Porlock Hill ... my suspicions are that he didn't want me to show him up on my silent ride :-) Jokes aside, I had three great days riding the bike that a year ago I was almost frightened to death by. If only his commentary could be there for ALL my rides. He is as they say Does exactly what it says on the can. Makes you ride safer and faster, with the ability to cope with any road situation.
