It’s been just over seven months since I did more than a mile or so biking. So today I decided to change that which led to 12.2 miles biking down to the River Mersey and back to ‘see the ducks’. Inappropriate clothing, no real plan for a route, no spares, money or time constraints. Just a bike that’s a bit too small length-wise for me, which I have to pedal in a weird way so my heels don’t clip the child seat on the bike, a new riding buddy sitting out back and an afternoon out and about. It was great, the weather didn’t matter (bit of rain at the end) and everyone was either happy or asleep when we arrived home. Oh and the ducks were much appreciated.
