Slippery Monsters


slippery

not having ridden for over a week due to house move and a cold i got itchy today and felt i needed to get out on the bike, so filled the hip flask with home made sloe gin and put on many layers of clothing and set off, my usual riding buddy was christmas shopping so it was a solo ride, conditions were not too bad and the roads were relatively ice free if you kept away from the gutters and half of the ride was off road anyway, the ground was frozen so mud wasn't an issue. i stopped for a swig from the flask in the middle of the woods and made the mistake of looking around me and apart from the light on the bars it was absolutely pitch black and now that the crunching of tyres on frozen earth had stopped i could hear the rustling and squeaks etc of the forest at night....it was at this point i felt compelled to get moving again before the monsters took me!, quite scary in a silly primeval way but a lot of fun
ride 119
5 miles
total 1536

It's funny how your imagination can start to take over when in a dark forest at night.
