brilliant ride,usual 7hs,but it all seemed to flow so well.
I think it's the soil conditions,dry but the cold retains some moisture.
So,there I was,sitting down,contemplating,full facer,pads,at the top of one of the last descents of the day,a man comes up with 3 kids,and the little girl starts reading a poem to the virgin mary-there's a little shrine on the top of that hill.
on the left,first 20secs.
while riding home I pinned it down a longish staircase,in the metro underpass,as I always do.
a young man shouts out 'nice!',so I gave him a thumbs up.and manualled away.
first compliment I've ever received,bike related,in 13 bloody years.
so it made me think of how little support,or interest,I've received from family,girlfriends.so **** them.but the ride was brilliant,best I've had in a long time.so brill.going out tomorrow as well,and boxing day.
thanks,random rasta dude.and thanks,little girl with the hairband.
