OK GO!

Benalla bike therapy

Posted on: Saturday October 4, 2014

After a heeuuuuuge week at work, I almost didn’t bring my bike to Benalla for the weekend because we were only on a flying visit. I did however, just in case, and after the three hour drive to get there I jumped directly on the bike and pushed hard out of town.

I pushed hard because I felt like I had a gentle tail wind, or good legs, and wanted to make it round a 60-70km loop before dark. That little tail wind never went away, so I’m taking that as a sign of good legs. Every now and then, the rough old dead as a fuck back-roads chip seal would give way to even deader, rough as fuck old back roads chip seal.

Kelly country.

When I rolled back into the gravel drive way of Fee’s parents’ familiar little house the kids were squealing with the joy of shooting each other with the garden hose out the back, and I felt like I’d left all the psychic weight I’d accumulated over the week out on the road.

66km. 2:09h. 224m.
