(Not) havin' a crack..or solo man wusses out
Mountain biking is meant to be fun, right? Right. With the shite weather that has come through in the last two days, and Canberra's reputation for being a cold bastard of a place (and that's just in summer!), my 8 hour solo career has lasted about as long as Mal Meninga's political career. In the immortal words of Big Mal himself, "I'm buggered". Yeah, I'm buggered if 'fun' means getting up at 6.30, in near freezing temperatures, dressing in thin lycra, getting on a bike and riding for 8 hours. I'll opt for some road k's instead, if the rain clears up. If not, I'll sleep in, watch TV and drink beer. Now that's fun!
