I Didn't Ride Today...

I didn't spend all week working my arse off and busting for a day that wasn't too busy or too climatically challenging or both, and I didn't take advantage of a cold but gorgeous Wellington Saturday by chucking my bike on my rack and rendezvousing with my good buddies Alex and Matt.

Nice report, though I personally find the turbines pleasing on the eye :love:

Given their size I was expecting them to be a much bigger 'wow' factor against the landscape, but their slowly turning blades i found strangly soothing and hypnotising. Not saying I'd want them everywhere, but I actually think they improve that particular view.

One of these days I'll bump into you riding (not literally of course) - and I promise not to comment on how clean your bike is :-)
