Mood buster

by Dunluce   March 13, 2014  

Today I cycled home from work in shorts and t-shirt for the first time this year.

And I sneaked onto the new road circuit at the Olympic Velodrome and had a blast round it until security made me leave. I came away feeling like a naughty schoolboy.

What has lifted your mood lately?

After last Sundays ride, I could feel a slight tingling sensation and a tightness on my brow like I caught a bit of sun.

Yep, took my armwarmers and legwarmers off on the ride to work (half day wednesday), basking in the sun, vitamin D coming out of my ears...

Not today though - fog fog fog, bitterly cold on any exposed skin Sad

Good to see a few comments although we could do with a few more. I think sometimes we forget that we cycle simply because it makes us feel good. `

This morning I was forced to bail out of a Friday afternoon ride due to work commitments...

...it's now cold, wet and foggy, and I'm feeling quite pleased with my decision!

(a couple of days sunshine and suddenly I'm a fair weather rider Cool )

I had to collect a package this morning on the way to work. The cross winds and Glasgow's 'innovative' approach to infrastructure meant that I ended up having a very intensive bike handling skills session, including how to save a two wheel slide over a gap in a manhole cover.

It wasn't exactly pleasant, but I had an amazing time and was smiling plenty after it.

Night riding with clear skies this week! BEAUTIFUL!

..OOH and tonight I have to do pyramid top end interval sets that are aimed at predominantly making me puke all over myself.

I am excite! ^_^ (at the fact that the season has finally properly begun!)

Happy Friday Smile

Noticing that my legs are now 0.001% less pasty white than they were last week.

Rode to a town I'd never been to with my riding buddies and then sat in the sun and had a beer and doing the same thing tomorrow with plans for a German bratwurst Fest at the end Smile

Bah, I've had the week off (yay!) but have been struck down by the bastard cold of evilness (boo). Dying to get out there, but my lungs would burst.
