Clearing my head

Cycling Covid

Wow this week has been brutal. How are you all doing?

Looks like COVID-19 is here to stay – so my whole company has been told to work from home.

Not a huge problem for us (I work for a tech company) and we’re all set up for remote working and accessing everything from the cloud. However, it feels like the whole world has been turned upside down.

I jumped on my road bike for the first time in a years and went for a 20km spin around the river. The speed, the handlebars, my body position, my quads, the sensation of rubber tyres flying across the bitumen, the click of my derailleur changing my chain… It was all fantastic. I’ve missed this so much.

I didn’t mind that I totally forgot how to use cleats and hand signals. I legit forgot how my gears worked. And I wouldn’t have been able to change a tyre tube if my life depended on it!

Anyway, here’s to social distancing and caring for your body and mind, before full quarantine kicks in.
