Prahran - Mt Pleasant - CBD:
I've headed north on a few Thursday mornings now. It's tough riding. It's (very) early. I'm getting exercise. So it would be reasonable to expect that I'd feel good about it. Sadly that's not the case. Every time I roll through Heidelberg there is a group of 3 old ladies, I'd guess mid 70s, out for a walk in barely more than dressing gowns, at least one with a walking frame. It's hard to feel like a bad arse when there are grannies doing basically the same thing.... in fucking nighties! DAMN YOU GRANNIES!

A mix up with Jimmy meant I was out solo, but that worked out ok.



It was cold, dark, foggy, and awesome. The restricted senses meant I rode in my own world, drifting between the glow of isolated street lights, pushing my legs on hills where memory was needed to gauge the top.

All up, I was happy to have 1,000m vertical done before work. It's done a lot to ease the unease not doing yesterday caused.
