windy road ride


Horrible ride this morning. Blown all over the place by a strong sidewind for pretty much the whole time. The strong wind added to the fact that the bike is light and twitchy gave me a few “moments”, one gust nearly sending me off the road and down an embankment into a river. Still, I made it in one piece to Simon’s house to drop off some bits for his bright red Wanga and had a cuppa tea, so it wasn’t all pain and terror.

Despite the weather, I saw loads of cyclists out this morning. I even saw a bloke on a Yeti mountain bike – you don’t see many of those around here. Everyone let on too, roadies and MTB’ers. I must have universal appeal. 😉
