Back on the bike

Well, after a week of work with no cycling to clear the mind, I was finally able to climb aboard for a road ride and then a MTB ride.

The road ride put some hurt on me. Funny how after a week off your body forgets the pain. It was fairly quickly reminded yesterday afternoon when I could barely walk up the stairs.

Following up that smattering of hurt, I pulled the MTB out for the regular wednesday morning ride. Time to throw myself into a hole of hurt and drag some dirt over the top!

It was good to catch up with the guys this morning. There are no photos as the pace was reasonably hot and I don't think I could have held the camera still for long enough. I did manage to make one small video though.

Everyone's favorite, Stonehenge.

After hitting up a few more trails with Steve, I limped to a breakfast rendevous where I inhaled a huge omelette and toast, washed down with a small bucket of orange juice and a coffee chaser. Feeling almost human again, I thanked Steve for not riding straight over the top of me when I bonked!
The cruise home was very steady, taking in some of the local bush.

Cornubia bike track.

No need for the lights now!

In it's natural element. The new Fuel did not disapoint.

Admiring the new rock wall installed in the local creek.

Time for a rest now, both me and the bikes. Lookout sunday though. I will be ride deprived again by then!
