I'm the prat who got 100AAA points on a fixie wearing SPD sandals in 2018 before my whole world crashed before my feet and the wheels literally fell off.
So after the most tumultuous of years, things have finally settled and my head's in a place where I wanna get back in the saddle.
I'm still dosed up on the happy pills, but I've made a lot of progress over the last few months. A side affect of some weight gain and the pills means I have high blood pressure now, so what better excuse to ride?
Was umming and arring about getting a geared bike to ease back in after my hiatus, but I've decided to stay fixed.
Payday Friday, so am treating myself to a set of spa cycles fixed wheels.
Watch this space guys.
I'm not quite ready for Wessex, and I'm Kent based now so my route base has changed somewhat. Luckily, the Shark and AWE are easy to get to should my desire to ride up silly inclines in a stupid gear returns fully. Until then I can see myself jumping on the Gravesend ferry and exploring Essex. My new girlfriend is in Essex so that sort of makes sense.
I'm not quite back yet, but if all goes well I should be on some of the flatter rides later in the season.
