A very welcome break after six hours at the books.
On a wooden swing in the rays of a Setting Sun, if not a rising one.
The coffee was instant but I wasn't the one who had to make it, so hey.
As Damo says, "it's all good".
I had a brief mental tussle over which bike to take. The key factor was the lack of time I had for coffeeneuring today, so I needed minimum fuss: ordinary clothes, ordinary shoes. As I freewheeled out of the village on Bridget, I realised that, for every kind of ride I might do, there is a bike in my stable that does it better than Bridget, but there is no type of riding -- at all -- that Bridget can't do.
