Cross Baiku. 1st in two weeks. Two clothing changes before departure. Another after 4 miles. Cold headwind. Road. Sluggish. Low energy. Pootle rather than spin. View. Breathe. Smell. Sense. 8miles, change outfit. Climb. Stunning vista. 12miles, change again. Can't regulate temperature. Feel the reason for no riding is returning. Damn, it is. Cough re-emerges. 18miles, finish. Add layers. Desperate for more. Damage limitation. Next ride Sussex Meet. this was and that will be the best ride of my life.
