Back on the bike

Ride2Word, a photo by AndrewGills on Flickr. I’m back on the bike. Both literally and figuratively. I saddled up this morning for a leisurely ride to work. Today I’ll be in the office all day earning enough money for my next adventures. It’s Friday. I think perhaps having half my face go numb was a […]

Ride and picnic at Toohey Forest
