Friday 16th September, solo ride

Only a quick ride today. Kenn decided that he didn’t want to ride today after his long ride yesterday. I was gagging for a ride so went for one while Kenn was sorting out the caravan.

I took the route that we went on the day before yesterday. The weather was overcast and breezy but the wind was in my face on the way out not the way back. Unlike Wednesdays ride, I didn’t tag on the extra bit. I simply rode to the level crossing, round the loop and back again. Only 6.2 miles but completed in 24.50 minutes, including stopping for a full minute at the level crossing on the way back and waiting for 2 trains to pass by.

It was a great ride, and I really enjoyed it. Nice to ride alone for a short distance too. When I got back the wheels were back on the van and we were pretty much ready to roll. Probably having a day off tomorrow as its a travelling day again.

About RosieRosie

RosieRosie is a woman of a 'certain age' - whatever the hell that is supposed to mean, known. I feel about 26. I have no idea what I look like as some older woman keeps getting in the way when I look in the mirror. Married, to someone who is a bit indifferent towards me. I have a proper wanderlust and have finally moved - using the housing exchange system from - where I started in Inverness, down to Cornwall. It's taken since September 2011, when I left Inverness until March 2016 to get to Cornwall. That's not too shoddy with a swap here and a swap there, saving up again for each move. I am going to move again though. I can't handle the hills. My knees are 10 years too old for around here. Not ruling out Cornwall in the future but, for now, my riding is suffering. I love my bikes, I love my dogs and I love guitars. They all keep my busy.
