31/03/2010

Commute:
Summer is well and truly gone, in fact its almost half way through autumn. Trees that seemed just weeks ago to be in full bloom are now almost barren.

Fatties:
Not to bad a bunch tonight (11 riders?), for a trip in towards town on the trails. Recent rains have left a few puddles, some of those puddles smell like poo, but in general it was hardpack as far as the eye could see.

The lip that I crashed on last week.

As we head into mid Autumn the days are starting to get a lot shorter, and lights are becoming a necessity. Still, I'm a stubborn arsehole who made a brash statement months ago about "not using lights until daylight savings ends" and I feell obliged to stick to those words.

The logical thing to allow me to get a decent length ride in while the sun still shone was to do extras before the ride, then bail once the bunch got to the city. I felt kinda guilty bailing on everyone halfway through the ride, even more so after hearing the bunch split later on.

I was happy because I was moving further away from the poo puddle. :)
