Yesterday we went for a cycling tour. Just to get an open egg sandwich at Oostvoorne. It is only a 70km round trip. By bike and SO on skates.
We were shattered by the end of it. Only visions of Lasagna got me through the last 15km.
According to SO I was still going quite fast. But as I told him it was either that speed or no speed. My legs only wanted to go at one speed. Whilst cycling I only had views of the road underneath me. But as I know that part of the road well I knew when to look up to take a corner.
SO was feeling no better unfortunately. He was ready to take the bus about 20 km before the finish. Needless to say that the plans to do 5x78km for a holiday were shelved. It would be the end of SO and me.
We ended up with a schedule where the 4 of us doing 3x65km and then our friends will continue and we’ll return home. That way they can do a few long stretches and we still have the fun of going together. The plan is Den Bosch – Maastricht or the other way.
Anyway after the long trip we had a bath (lovely) and dinner – of course lasagna for me. Today we’ll have an early night as this morning was a bad bad start.
For those of your that wonder – yes car did arrive and until we have come up with a better name it will be High Speed Nerd – Hippie Space Nerd or Mouse.
