Ms Grumpy Trousers
I've only done 15km today. I think I'm getting the flu so I've called it a day early. Front derailleur has gone awry. I tried to adjust my helmet and it ended up choking me, couldn't re-adjust it back into a good position. Because of the headrest on my recumbent trike, the helmet has to sit a long way forward on my head. I need a new one that doesn't get in the way. Today, I am definitely in favour of non-compulsory helmets.
And the magpie was positively rabid. The flag didn't put it off today, it's now going for my head. Bit of a worry.
Just call me Ms Grumpy (Lycra) Trousers today. No use cycling if I'm not enjoying it. Hopefully I'll be better tomorrow.
