I feel ill and beat up
Broke my rear mech a couple of weeks ago and it took a while to source a
replacement. In the meantime I bought a cheap road bike to take my
daughter out and about- had a lovely couple of weeks bimbling around on
the cycle routes round here.
Anyway today was the day to get the Dekerf back into action and so
decided to go for my hard mountain route over the Carneddau. Must be
over ten years since I last rode it.
Now sitting here poleaxed and drinking a Lemsip cos I think I've done
meself a mischief. I realised half way round that the ride was doing me in
and I had a number of opportunities to head home via shortcuts but
thought it time to get serious with my biking.
Must be a year now since I got back in the saddle so I thought I was more
than capable- urggh, got that a bit wrong! I just hope that it doesn't deter
me from getting round that particular loop again soon.
Today- 19 miles
YTD- 193 (off road)
It's dinged, scratched, used, abused, green and Canadian and the only ride I got- so I suppose I got to love it...
