Rattle Battle

28 Jan 2008 at 16:11

As I woke to the nicest day of 2008 I knew I had to ride. My new schedule is set at two days off a week, which usually means Monday, as, well, Monday's suck, and after a reasonably painful forty yesterday it would fit in nicely.

However, almost blue skies (later to be replaced by light clouds) and the lack of galeforce winds made for and unexpected moment of excitement about riding.

Outside it felt a lot warmer than the measured 7 degrees, at times I wish I had a jersey with rollable sleeves, especially as the sweat started to drop onto the inside of my glasses and then fill up my eye, a flip flop of the head soon sorted that and I set about destroying all the riders I could find, there were only three, but they were all dispatched with an ease that I've not felt since the back end of last summer, and only a very light pain in my back, and after 14 painful rides that was a very very welcome improvement.
