aciiid


first proper ride since ol' fat appeared (commuting doesn't count as it's short and i'm half asleep). i can't say it was entirely pleasurable. catching up with riding buddies was lovely, despite not being able to speak most of the time. fortunately due to punctures and some 'interesting' route choice, i had a chance to catch my breath. twisty singletrack isn't much fun when slow. but at least i got a smiley sticker and friends that don't mind waiting.

Yay to stickers!

I have yet to do my first proper off-road ride of the year!

Please tell me you were wearing white gloves.

I give my kindergarten kids stickers when they're behaving themselves. Were you being a good girl? Did you put your outside shoes on all by yourself?

So glad you got a 'proper' ride in. At least your friends waited but I'd say "Real friends don't drop you in the first place!" :-) Just saying.
