A not-so-interesting Week

This week's been riddled with a fair bit of inconveniences. Straining my back hindered my ability to cycle greatly. I had to take an extra day to rest and the following day I could only cycle for about 25km before returning back home... It still hasn't recovered mind you.

SPOKE-D

Then the mysterious HED spoke. IT JUST BROKE. THANK YOU GOZITAN ROADS!

 A HORRIBLE SCENE! MURDER!!! MURDER!!

A HORRIBLE SCENE! MURDER!!! MURDER!!

Also, those wheels are built like absolute TANKS (HED Jet 4). I've been cycling on those for more than 12,000km!!!! Albeit, I've managed to bend the rear rim a bit and they have taken quite A LOT of dings in the road leading to messed up bit in the brake track but they're great rims!

 

Fast Forwarding...

Saturday 6th August...

Grand Day, I woke up at about 6am for some mysterious reason (alarm was set at 6:50). Decided to take advantage of the convenience, peeped outside to check the wind condition and to my utter surprise, it wasn't all that windy!

AND THAT MEANS ONE THING - P5

Yep! It's been a long while since I cycled on the P5...Decided to stick to doing laps in Qala road for about 34km but then...out of nowhere, the winds picked up VERY QUICKLY. I was being flung around like a flag. Scary stuff.

I was left with no option but to return home but I was not satisfied yet so I just quickly swapped out the P5 and took out the S3 to continue to cycle for a few more kms!

* * By the way, the S3 now has a replacement rear wheel until the trusty HED JET 4 gets fixed :(! * *

I cycled for 20 something KMs with the S3, did the Nadur Hill from Qala and that was about it...quite a non-eventful ride if you ask me.

 

Ah well...they're only TEMPORARY INCONVENIENCES, such as many of us face but on a greater scale in our everyday lives. Suck it up and march on!

I'll be aiming for some challenges next week!
