After trying to get away for a ride earlier, and being held up by Nathanael needing assistance at a party he went to – he fell weird off a jump castle, fell and burned some of his face on the canvas (which was on a concrete driveway). He did a good job…
But I got out eventually. Jacq told me not to be too long, so I powered – or tried to power – through the kilometers. The time I was okay with – although I think I should be able to try and do 40 in 1.5 hours (maybe I am just dreaming…)
The trip was a nice ride. Up the Murodoch road hill, and down towards Queenscliff, but turning and heading through Collendena to Ocean Grove, and then back home.
Nature was against me today. Swooped by two magpies, both rather irate. The first took four landing attempts on my shoulder, it wasn’t until I tried to bash him with a water bottle. The second was flying at a fast pace towards me. I didn’t even try to out ride him, just ripped out the water bottle, and he gave up.
But it was good to get out again. Rest day tomorrow..
