Cycling is like life. Cycling with no goal is meaningless. What meaning is there cycling in circles? Or living aimlessly? Meaning comes from direction and destination. Join me in my life's journey on a mountain bike :)

Change of challenge

Jul distance: 233 km

Admiralty Road West, 58 km. Some things haven't changed. Attap Valley Road still stinks of garbage. But I see a trail and what a thrilling vista it is. My knobbies scramble on the gravel as the trail twists and turns. Monkeys gape and a squirrel gambols up a tree. I find myself going in the other direction to increase the thrill of going up a steeper slope (instead of coasting down it) and round tighter corners. I realise that a hard ride is fun while a plain vanilla one is boring. Which means hard work can be fun compared to plain sailing ...
