Cold comfort

May 19, 2018 — Leave a comment

It couldn’t last… Autumn has finally arrived properly, and it’s a real test of my resolve to keep on the path.

My plan to get to The Redback is… not really formalised, if I’m honest. I’m riding, eating okayish… it’s not enough, really, but it’s way better than nothing.

Getting out today felt good. The rain started as I left home and stayed around on and off. I’m a fair weather fairy, that’s for sure, but it was pretty fun.

I even spent some time spinning along with a young, fit local XC racer, who was good company for a few kilometres.

I was just a tad despondant when I realised that not only was he dressed in half the gear I was, he was only in the small chainring most of the way… and he rode an extra 10km before even starting his ride proper!

I’m going away for a solid week of work from Monday, but at least I’ll get some riding in! Monday and Tuesday is with Holden, and we’re riding at Buxton MTB Park on Tuesday, before I head up to cover the Port to Port with my good buddy Bruce Newton, who’s competing in the race.
