..but completely worth losing the feel of my fingers. Familiar turf but you forget how great it is to be part of the vastness. A stop in Cloverdale to warm up and then on to get new gloves. I know how much of a nerd I am when I am smiling so hard my helmut moves....My favourite thing is the take a corner, side by side, with the guzzi. It energizes me to see how far my skill has come. I can't believe the trust he must have had in the beginning....I still feel there is much to learn.
River Road in Richmond was ideal. Nippy...serene and car free. How could I not smile. We stop to take a picture...my oldest thinks I look like a martian....big white helmut, two spindly legs. I could care less. I was content in that moment. River Road in Delta...and off to a side road and the reminders of landmarks I forget over winter.
Winter feels all about work...tucking in early...now as the crocus push through the moist earth I remember there are adventures I need to set off for.
I needed spring!
