The Great Big Morning After the Week Before Bike Blog Roundup

All right. Hands up all those feeling flatter than a tyre that's had a visit from the puncture fairy after last weekend's big rides have been and gone and the elections are over and we still haven't woken up in a hillier version of the Netherlands?
