We're rolling, rolling, Rolling on the river

I had Tina Turner at the back of my head this morning "I left a good job in the city, Working for the man every night and day, And I never lost one minute of sleeping, Worrying 'bout the way things might have been, Big wheel keep on turning, Proud mary keep on burning, And we're rolling, rolling, Rolling on the river....". A lack of sleep and pouring rain made getting out a struggle, but Piglet, Scotty and a new face Peter were waiting for me.

The rain just got worse, but once you're wet you can't get wetter so we thought we'd give it a go. The route took us out the Kings Road and across to Greengraves Rd. Scotty only had light gloves, so headed before home before we had to play hunt the finger.

The rest of us did a loop around the Ballybarnes Road, across to Clandeboye and back to Bradshaws. Piglet's fixie wasn't slowing him down! By that stage we were properly cold and headed for home and our new warm hoodies (great job Andrew).

Really well done to Peter - it's usually a lot more fun than that. Apologies for the poor photography, but wet screens aren't very responsive. Fingers crossed tomorrow's a bit better and we aren't "rolling on the river" again.

  1. There are several basic kinds of cycle home trainers, yet the options within each category have grown wildly the past few years. You should find the suitable one for yourself.
