backwards sunshine ride
Unusually I met up with Chris in the daylight for a reverse ride of one of our regular night routes. I never realised how litter strewn and urban much of the route is. CCTV cameras and warehouses where I'd imagined thick woods and wilderness. The sticky mud has turned to rock hard lumps. The riding would be fast if my legs were up to it.
Chris very kindly let me witter on about the Skyline and fed me home made tea loaf. There should be a cycling rule that states whenever a puncture occurs, cake should be produced from ones bag.
Blue skies and dusty trails, it certainly feels like spring has sprung. We even managed an official cake stop, sitting outside in the sunshine. Yes, that's two cakes in one ride. Things aren't that bad after all!
