Just got in from first night-ride of the season and had a pretentious bit of baiku forming in my head so I thought I'd inflict it on you all;


Image


Work is relaxed.
Sun shines like gold.
Returning to an empty house.
Bike greets me, an old friend.
Lights affixed,
Into the sunset we ride

Road - Train - Trails

Sunshine fades,
Lights project perfect trails ahead.
Chalk sparkles like earthbound stars.
Dark hands of thorn and branch,
They grab and tear to no avail.
Hidden eyes flame in the intruding light.

Singletrack - Fireroad - Clearing

Eerie noises, a fox screams.
Cold air burns the lungs,
A stillness in chaotic times.
Lights appear in the distance,
Climbing closer,
Tea cures all ills.

Climb - Cake - Tea

Into the dark.
Wind screams, my nerves jangle.
Pushing fast, a downhill flight.
Animals scatter before me,
The terror in the night.
The end comes too soon.

Home - Tea - Medals

Counting the days till christmas,
I'll miss this place....

Who's calling my phone? Gotta sort this season ticket issue out first. Forget all about missed calls. Could really do with a ride tonight. Was a perfect 'not be in London' day today. Still autumn evening. Eat pizza and scour ebay instead. Wish I had gone out. Log in. See Night Baiku. Arse, I bet that that was the missed call...Wanna go for a night ride? Wasted evening. Could have been the best ride of my life.

get into work. taken mtb for a change as may rain. realise mtb is shit on the road. left the road rubbered in with soft compound. nice.
fellow commuter asks if I wanna ride this pm. bonus. never ridden with him before. can I finish in time? How quick is he? arse. no drink either. oh well. wing it and go.
found new trails. a hill in warwickshire. and a downhill. shocked.
back home by 5. 3 hrs in saddle and SO presumed I just worked late.
double bonus. brownie points unchanged. new riding buddy.
not quite best ride of my life. but good.
:D
