like great weekends which have great beginings, great middles and great ends
Chips 40th birthday bash week started with a bit of a downer, and thats not yet resolved...but there was some riding in the week, the dry high pressure air was making the trails really nice and almost dusty !!
the actual weekend started out a treat, rocked up at Matts place to find out that 2 of my very dear friends were "gettin it on" that made me smile and be happy (yes really) and not just in anticipation of when Dave arrived !
come the ride and all the people I love were there, the people who are the reason I keep going back to the valley (not often enough I know) the person I only see maybe 4or 5 times a year, and lots of other good folk who are the reason for riding. The weather was ace, the trails were ace, the ride was bloomin ace.
The night time was lots of fun, chipps was a guitar god, Brant was in fine form, everyone was smiling and happy to be back on the road, my jaw was aching from laughing, sleep came easily, not too much booze (to be fair we were all saved by the dryness, must remember that )
Sunday was a day of walking the dogs, we eventually got the love birds out of bed (after all there's only so much pollen a bee can harvest!) and set off up to trails which are usually the scene of mucho macho testosterone, it was nice to walk for a change.
Took some pics, had great chats, laughed a lot, devised a cunning plan ;-)
Excellent roast dinner in the pub and home, all was well
This Monday, long way in and back, yesterday the same, today I had to run my dad to an appointment so came in by car, grey skies and a bit of a sniffle means I havent missed ridning today, although whilst this dryness lasts I may well go out tonight.
