Rode out to the base of the hills on this little baby. Did most of the ride on the footpath but took a few little turns on the road to pass slow-moving mama-charis – the local term for the old-fashioned but practical ladies bikes that everyone rides here. I would have kept going up the hill but a) I took a wrong turn and ran out of road. The iPhone’s map feature is excellent but not if you don’t look at it. And b) I’d left home late and it was starting to get on toward getting dark and I was worried that Kazuko would start to get worried but it turns out she wasn’t.
And what’s more, no one told me to book off during the ride.
