On the street, hoping for a brighter day

(Apologies to Gil Scott Heron for ruining your lyrics for my title)

So, 2 rather pessimistic blogs and I had to find redemption somewhere.  And that somewhere was the roads between here and Ironbridge, riding with a friend and having coffee with an ex-World Champion (and pretty mean Team Pursuiter).  Today I got out on the bike and enjoyed it.  Getting out of bed was still difficult but I made it.  The ride wasn’t particularly fast, but it was some miles.  The best thing was that I had a natter, rode somewhere and felt a bit freer.  Yes, I know many people have said it before and I’ve often forgotten it but the best things in life are the small and simple things.  As Frances E Wilard said: “She who succeeds in gaining the mastery of the bicycle will gain the mastery of life.” I think she might be right.

Thanks to everyone who has emailed me, left comments on the blog or replied on Facebook.  Each one has been helpful in a different way and made a difference in my mood.
