It’s really easy to forget just how fast life can change and sometimes the reminders are stark and in your face. Or in my case lying in the middle of the road in peak hour traffic, wondering what the hell happened.
After being cooped up inside for the past couple of weeks feeling crook it was nice to escape and get out and enjoy the sunshine. The calendar says that winter started on Saturday, and the sun was out. I’m outta here.! Today there was no real plan. Just a ride in the sunshine. Okay the…

Upon inspection it was pretty clear what had happened – the bottom mount of the rear shock had sheared off! This left the bike to just bounce along on the spring. Certainly not ideal.!
When Deb initially mentioned the weekend to me she suggested we take the bike. Okay, she had me at bike…. so we decided to make it into a long long weekend by taking Friday and Monday off and do a bit of exploring.
Do bikes get jealous? Do they get offended if you leave them at home and take another one.?
