I managed to drink a small ocean of red wine while watching last night’s giro stage. It all started at the bike shop where I stuck my nose in to find out how the week had been.
Matt and Nickiy came back to my place for dinner. I managed to crash into Matt at one intersection on the way home. Some would call this incompetence but it did at least buy Kazuko time to get home ahead of us and tidy up a bit. At home we discovered that a cache of old red cleanskin bottles that has been sitting in the kitchen for some time was actually drinkable.
And so I woke up a bit rough this morning. Luckily the only person I’d arranged to ride with was Kazuko and she likes to sleep in. We decided to ride somewhere flatter than the hills for a change so ended up doing a lap of the Swan and Canning rivers. We hadn’t done this for a while so it was a bit nostalgic.
Sleeping in worked in out favour as we missed the morning chill and rode in weather as good as you can hope for. And without all those hills, it was easy kilometres. Kazuko should reach her target of 1000km for the month some time tomorrow and I’m off to the hills again. It should be a struggle out of bed as it’s an early start but I can’t get to bed before they get to the top of the Stelvio tonight.
