Life after work and the trips of a lifetime

"We are judged by what we finish, not by what we start." - Anonymous

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Woo hoo! What a ride!..attributed in this form to either Maxine Cartoon or anon

Yesterday's ride

Yesterday's ride was s'posed to be an easy NOT >2300m climbing..just a mere 700m and undulating. We started off early..all rugged up 'cos we were in the mountains and were still a bit damp from the previous ride and overnight rain. Actually I had  4 layers on top and full length leg warmers on which in the end turned out to be a good choice.

We got to the lunch spot just as it started to rainand lingered longer than usual ..waiting for the rain to ease off a little..we still had 63km to go so couldn't dally too long.

Not very much further on it suddenly started to rain heavily and then the rain turned to hail.  In front of us we could see blue sky and so the 2 of us who happened to be in front just kept going..there was some discussion but with only an open road or a tree to shelter under we opted to keep cycling and hopefully keep ahead of the worst of it.

And we did but others were not quite so lucky and had to resort to the sag wagon
