Talk shop six
To Old Upper Thomson Road, 26 km. The last time I was away for more than half a day (excluding weekends and public holidays) was on 3 Jan. Now, it looks like my five days of leave in Jun is going up in smoke. Time for some window shopping therapy. I chat with bikeshop man and he tells me the intricacies of tyre treads. Darn, I could've done better in my 7 May race (see below) for just $50. He offers to give me a ride if I'm joining another race. Woohoo, I've got a race sponsor! When he closes shop, I tear up and down the road, dodging joggers who are to the left, centre and right of the road. If my new bar ends are horns, I could be goring them.
