Had a neat ride this arvo

Fixed a GPS do the handle bars and worked out that I can do around 42kph. Best part was going down the road and have a horse trot alongside me. Now that never ever happened in a car.

Lots of cool things happen on bikes that never happen in a car.

Had an even better ride this arvo. Got a half day off today so I thought I'd ride home the long way. I really didn't think I'd make it and I was right. Ended up doing 5.5 Km. May sound nothing to most of youse but I'm recovering after a 12 year forced stint of sitting on my arse.

I finally had to stop about 200 metres from home. Saw more nifty stuff too, but the biggest deal... well, I raised my first sweat in 12 years... damned near making me shed a tear. I think I'm on the mend.... yahhhhhhooooooooooooo.

Well, I clipped a neat minute off the trip today. Also noticed that we had a burned out public hall at the end of my street. You really do see more on a bike.

If everyone rode bikes there would be no need for therapy.
