Bank Holiday weekends seem to come with high expectations. If it is sunny like it has been so far in London, I feel tremendously guilty if I pass by the rare opportunity to get out on an entirely free day off.
So anyway I took a pleasant little mood-enhancing spin locally, and all was well.
Parts of the ride, although urban, reminded me of this I wrote;
Gaining momentum by friendly gradient,
Exciting the senses to smiling radiant,
Think not of whether or when it will end,
Relish the moment, enjoy the bend,
Committed angles which make Pisa blush,
Adrenaline engaged, experience a rush.
Conscious green as hedgerows passed,
An innocent thrill, sustained to last.
