blustery and overcast weather greeted me as i rolled away from the door, fitted some new CX tyres at the weekend, they were fine for commuting and i thought i'd try them on some gentle off road routes (what i like to refer to as "roughstuffing") so a canal loop wascalled for, all the towpath section to be uphill to test the grip. the tyre performed admirably, no loss of traction on quick loose and sticky terrain and no punctures which the conti speed kings they replaced suffered badly from. it was a bit depressing to have to switch on my lights at 7pm, Autumn is definately here
