Sometimes, you don't want to be on the bike. It's not common but it happens.

Sometimes you don't have a choice; be it a weather issue, a partner issue or an injury issue.

Of these the injury issue is the most frustrating. Weather passes, turbo trainers can act as a substitute. Partners can be persuaded or relent. Injuries nag and persist. They require rest and rehab. They hurt.

We have been unfortunate to have had some serious injuries within the club - but fortunately improving or resolving.

The Dark Side of the Moon

An unusual title for a blog post i'll grant you, but it will all become painfully obvious as you read on.

Now, lunar observation doesn't have much to do with cycling; not I guess unless you are an astrological follower, who only rides when the Moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter is aligned with Mars (musical joke). I guess it better than when there are rings around Uranus.

And, thats really where this post is heading- The dark side of your moon.

Those of you who have talked to me on rides may know that i'm on my third saddle of the year.
