If the world were perfect, I would be heading out for an overnight ride today. But the world is not perfect. Earlier in the week, I spent a half hour working with a guy who had a very bad cold. He should not have been at work. But he was, and he was coughing and spluttering everywhere. No one told him that it is best to cough and sneeze into your elbow. I had to help him with software stuff on his computer.
You know where this is going.
I woke up Saturday with a bad headache and sore throat. I slept a lot of Saturday. I am feeling marginally better today. The headache has lessened. It still hurts to swallow, but I’m not coughing or sneezing.
So we put in 24 miles on a bunch of teeny weeny roads close to home that I’ve never gotten around to riding before. These are all little roads that don’t really connect up to anything useful in rides to places further afield.
The wind was calm to start, picking up to a 10-15 kph southeasterly by the time I was heading for home. The temperature was around 20C to start and probably about 25C when I got home. The high temp was predicted for 33C today. It should be about 27C, but it’s been quite a few years since we had temps that were average in March. March has become what February used to be. It’s a good thing climate change is just a Chinese conspiracy, cough, cough.
So here are a few photos from our gentle pedal. Now, please excuse me, that was enough energy expenditure for today. I need to go take a nap.
