Wow, I had to sit out a wonderful biking day yesterday because my bum is still giving me a lot of worries. It felt really sore after saturdays' ride but the ulcer that has been bothering me on and off for more than a month now had finally broken open so I could clean it out , desinfect it and start the healing process. Today it seemed well enough healed to go out for a ride .
And what a great ride it was. The weather was wonderful, sunny, almost no wind and clear blue skies. I did not want to underdress so I still wore long trousers and a long sleeved jacket. When I stopped briefly in a hollow road I turned my head into the sun and felt its soothing glorious warmth make my skin tingle with joy. I wanted to go and lie down in the grass but I guess if I would have done that I would have fallen asleep. Ah, what a little sun can do after 2 weeks of rain and wind.
I did one of my regular tours including a few extra loops to gather some extra heightmeters and avoid some cobbly sections (my bum wasn't THAT healed). All went well and it was with a very broad grin on my face that I completed the ride.
Ride Stats : 70K and 665 heightmeters in 2h55mins
