The planets were aligned today. I know this not because i, like hitler and the british secret service, utilise astrologers, but because i:
a) finished work early, as in 4pm
b) had no other things to do
a) wasnt snowing, raining or indeed precipitating in any way whatsoever
b) was, on the other hand, sunny
So, i popped out to mugdock for a ride. Its good to get outside if you are doing a 30/30 it seems, it makes sense.
A technical ride ensued, in the recent snow-melt squelchy conditions, slip slidin' around over gnarly, rooty trails. Ace. Power climbs, laying it over through mud pit corners, up and over rocks, dicing though tightly packed trees.
5pm to 6.30pm, finishing in the gloaming, with the lights of glasgow in the distance...
