I generally don’t cycle on a Monday. It’s the designated day for all matters administrative but, from time to time, rules are meant to be broken. I just couldn’t resist riding today. The sky was a clear blue, the sun was shining, and the mercury had risen above 10 degrees for the first time it what seems like months. This morning, I dropped my beloved off at the airport, drove back, changed and went out on the bike – bliss.
It’s hard to articulate how much I love cycling. I’m not sure whether it’s the freedom of the road, the physical exertion, just being out on one’s own in the open air, the weather, the scenery or what. Just that I really miss it when I can’t ride and I won’t be able to ride while I’m at my parents’ later this week. So I’m making the most of today and tomorrow. Can you blame me?
