Unexpectedly, Mrs Mab was home on Saturday. She was planning to go out with her friends, which I had thought dinner etc. Turned out it was shopping and lunch and home by 1pm.
Sitting on the couch as she chats to her friends, I realised that this means that she is home to look after the kids….. So without any fuss, I grabbed my helmet and rolled the bike out. Be gone, between 2-3 hours. Enough time to ride out to Mt White Cafe/Pie in the Sky and come home.
So I found myself tooling up the Old Pacific Highway on a Saturday afternoon. A lot less bikes about than I had expected. I think maybe two things, it was afternoon with most riding in the morning I presume and there was rain forecast all day (though not really doing anything).
Did see a copper, but they got busy with a car that had spun out just up from the bridge.
I shouldn’t be surprised, but the adjustments to the suspension that I talked about in the previous post really have the bike giving me a lot more confidence than previously. I felt quite comfortable… or perhaps as comfortable as my innate caution allows…
