Red eyes, green eyes
To Old Upper Thomson Road, 21 km. It's been 10 days since I last rode. I've had viral conjunctivitis, also known as pink eyes. My case was so bad, my eyes were red like in a horror movie. And I became green eyed with envy, as I had to miss rides Barelang and Belungkur. Today is my "recovery ride" to "see" if I can do it. First, I sit in front of a fan at full blast to be sure my cornea cells don't fly off, then I set off. I'm off form. Right hamstring hurts though it's a short ride (OK, I tried to chase a roadie and a car ...). I also think about Ho Swee Haw, whom I met at Penang MTB Jamboree 2003. He crashed and died on 21 Feb in Perak. I'm sorry he's gone.
