Did I say Smiles… perhaps that’s stretching it a little. Maybe a snarl or two or the odd grimace, but precious little in the smile bank from todays ride. It was maybe 7-8°C out there, blowing a good 10-15mph with the odd gust to nearer 25 and generally alternating between drizzle and full on downpour.
Managed maybe 60km before deciding “stuff this for a game of soldiers”, running for home, and hitting the shower.
From there the day picked up, I managed to help a friend out by passing on a old Turbo-Trainer of mine, hopefully they’ll get some use out of it – it’d been languishing in the cupboard since I got the Tacx VR trainer, so it’s good to think it’ll get some practical use.
Then I jumped onto the MTB and tootled down to the local for a couple of pints before returning home to a rather pleasant sunday dinner and slipping into something more comfortable – like unconsciousness
