I have been feeling rubbish recently. An unusual three days off work due to some ‘orrible lurgy going around meant I’ve been off the bike. Today I gingerly rode back in at what felt like a very slow pace, but one that didn’t stop me overtaking a few other riders. Maybe it wasn’t so shabby.
Still the ride was far from boring, some long haired lunatic was walking in the bike lane near work on a tight 90 degree right hander. Fortunately I could see him through the railings as I approached so a rather nasty collision was avoided. Instead he received a torrent of pinging and a ‘get a hair cut… knobhead’ send off.
