This morning I was a little down, because my girlfriend left town to go to her friend’s birthday party.
But now I’m all fresh and glowy!!
Today I went out into the Surrey countryside with a few mates for a bit of mountain biking. I last did this regularly back in 1999, until I came off and broke my elbow, so I am way out of my condition and so is the bike (although apparently ‘retro’ 90s bikes are in fashion at the moment due to their garich colours and ‘hardcore’ image).
Even though the rain started as we did, and I was a little rusty and out of condition, I had a really great time going up and down Holmbush Hill.
When I was living in Maidenbower, my flatmate and I would quite often ride over to Tilgate Forest, which as far as I know is still a pretty good place to ride. I’ve been way too lazy for the past 5 years, but I am no longer happy with this, or my expanding waistline…
