I’m Back on the Mountain Bike!

Finally! I'm back on my favourite bike doing my favourite type of cycling. Ok, it was a fairly steady ride, but it did involve some dry dusty trails and that to me is perfection. It was last weekend on a slightly cloudy Sunday afternoon. I was feeling a little bit tired, slightly stressed but I... Continue Reading →
