Derailing the 7am ride
It sucks to wake up at 9:30am on a Saturday knowing that -
- I've missed a Privat Lesson
- I've missed out on a quality and long ride in the wet roads
- And realising how much of a lazy ass I am
Nonetheless, I got up and went out anyway! At around 10:22...ON A SATURDAY.
For those of you who aren't aware, 10am in Gozo on a Saturday is the holy grail for uneasy motorists and a rather intimidating amount of traffic.
Anyway...Me and Domenic rode anyway cause we couldn't let a beautiful day like today pass us by without going out on the saddle!
Today's ride was fine with the occasional honks on a Saturday (around 3).
And the occasional motorist who INSISTS on overtaking a cyclist with a 25cm gap
And the occasional Kings of the Road....
Other than that, 35km with 322m ascension in 1hr 25 mins is...quite a slow. I shall go with the 'traffic' excuse!
So you could safely say, it was a VERY normal Saturday Ride!
