A bit of fun

Okay, so it's not bike related but it was a blast. Over the last few weeks Cookie and a local engineering firm have been building a soap box derby racer which finally got it's first outing on Saturday.

There was all sorts of machinery on show and the emphasis was on fun for all the kids both young and old. We new before we even started that we had a quick kart but it was good to see it up against some of the more competitive karts.

Cookie got in a couple of runs while Stefan & myself had 1 a piece. Cookie got stuck behind some traffic but both Stefan and I managed to run away with pretty easy wins. Here's a wee video with some pics of the construction, the competition and the racing!
