In my mind’s eye I jumped out of bed this morning to knock a quick three hours of enthusiastic riding and to test a replacement winter bike.
Completely separately my body announced that it was willing to tolerate 2-3 hours of gentle touring but foolish notions of energetic prancing about were not going to be tolerated.
This message was delivered about 200 metres from our gate when I hit the first short stretch of cobbles that marks the edge of the village.
It is a good job it was a lovely day. Stunning views from the Chapelle du Try-au-chêne above the valley of the Dyle at Bouseval. And the bike rode well.
So never a day wasted.
no riding for me but i did go and collect a couple of bikes , so cant complain .
just hope i can get out 2moro am
Ghent 6 tomorrow – first time and Mark Cavendish was in the lead before tonight!
That is why I love being car free. I don’t have a choice, I have to bike. And every ride ends up being worth it.
