Péron

4 / 7 / 2013Europe 2013

I stayed in Péron for three weeks, primarily to spend some time with family. I took a break from taking photos, but it was a good chance to write up the previous few trip reports (I’m now very nearly up to date).

It was also a good chance to give bike a good clean, de-gunk, and re-lube, as well as an oil and filter change.

The two days in the Alps had evaporated my rear brake pads (though I freely admit to being an idiot for not checking them more frequently). The front ones had a little life in them yet, but the sintered pads I put on the rear were such an improvement I went back and bought the same for the front as well.

Rather than get new winter gloves I took the opportunity to try out some handlebar muffs. They look ridiculous but initial testing suggests that I can comfortably ride in the rain at 12˚C with just motocross gloves on underneath.

Since one of my relatives works there I got the chance to visit part of CERN, which is very impressive, and without which there wouldn’t be an internet for you to see these few cameraphone photos:
