Not Racing, Just Riding
A late start didn't bode well for my self appointed aim of riding a century a month, today was the last possible day for Jan to achieve this, however I'm of a mind to give myself some slack as the first two weeks of Jan were written off due to the weather, so I figure that two in Feb will pull me back on target.
Anyway, I did ride today, all the way to the sea, 52 mosty off road miles, down the TPT to Hale lighthouse, in the sunshine, against the wind going and slightly assisted on the way back, which was just as well because 4 crumpets and a cliff bar were not enough to prevent the dreaded bonk.
But it didn't matter, riding a bike that cost less than the clothing I was wearing meant that it shouldn't work, it did, even with a mystery puncture, it worked, sometimes just riding is enough.
