Just got back from a lovely little road ride. 20 miles of quiet lanes and only slight drizzle for half of it. I stopped to take some photos of some tan coloured cows for a flickr group and managed to stand still long enough to not be able to feel my toes.
On the way home a I over took a guy riding a mtb up a slight hill, I smiled and said hi as I passed. I could hear his gears crunching behind me as we got on to the flat. So I did the thing of trying to not look like I'm trying whilst trying to ride as fast as possible. I manage to hold him off for about 4 minuets, he then passed me with an even bigger smile and a louder hello. He turned off left down quiet a steep road, the opposite way to home but what the hey, the race was on! Into the drops and peddling like billy-o, I then cruised past. We both burst out laughing, great fun.
Was so cold by the time I got back I managed to delete my photos due to shivering too much. Looks like I'll have to go out tomorrow.
