So I’ve got a load of new bruises and I’m walking like an osteoporosis-riddled octogenarian but I’ve been riding my bike a lot this week. Last night a pal showed me some gorgeous singletrack I’d never ridden before, and it was so good for me after a hectic week. As you swoop and swirl through the woods you just focus on each turn of the trail and your mind slowly empties of all the other crap. It’s proper therapy. It was also quite hard – harder than I’d have tried by myself, lots of rocks and gnarl, but you know what I bloody did it and I CAN do it. Need to push myself more.
