Hey all, Wanted to share this with you, it's a fair accomplishment to me. I'm in counselling for a wide range of issues, and I was given homework of a kind. I had to figure out how I get to be so happy on the bike. I still couldn't tell you for sure. Anyway, any excuse to go for a ride is a good one, if you need one at all, and so I took off today for a spin. Not just anywhere, though. I took off for Angle Crossing. (pics here. Warning, it's a PDF, and map here) Angle Crossing is a dirt road, the whole way. Until this morning, I'd never ridden on a dirt road for any great length, mostly car parks. I had a great time, even if I did nearly come unstuck in some wet dirt (not sure it was really mud, it was too dry for that). The bike liked to slide in some places, and I almost lost my little companion (I shoved a Bandage Bear down the front of the fairing) on some rough ground at one point. Oh, I guess I should mention that the front tyre needs replacing on the bike, shouldn't I?
