Ride 15 of 31

It's been raining nearly all day but at about 3pm I spied some blue sky trying really hard to make it to my bit of Lancashire. I willed it to get to me by 5pm when I'd arranged to meet Carolyn. Luck was with me and I actually needed my sunnies by ride time. I'm still feeling quite a bit below my best all full of cold and coughing a lot, so we agreed to take it steady this evening. Some fun rolling bits along the reservoir, a couple of gentle climbs and a some really nice descents. Home after about 3 hours of this feeling way better than if I'd stayed on the couch with paracetomol, lemony drinks and self pity, thus proving that a bicycle is a better cold remedy than anything your pharmacist can sell you. Mind you, try telling husband of mine that I do need that new Santa Cruz Juliana for purely medicinal purposes!

Dear Mr Vikki, your beloved actually DOES need a Santa Cruz Juliana for medicinal purposes. Actually, you'll probably find that once she has the most delicious bike ever (well, apart from the Blur) that it will be a cure for almost anything. Really. It's true. Those Santa Cruz's are just magic.

Thankyou, a second opinion is vital in such complex medical cases. Those people at Santa Cruz do make an eye catching bike, I haven't seen a Blur in real life, they look lovely on the website, so it might be one for me to think about. I know it's a bit away but maybe we'll see what Father Christmas can fit down the chimney this year.

I rode a blur at Mayhem. Mmmmmmmm...

Sigh.
