The bike has gone into storage.
Please send flowers, chocolates or Meuse beers.
This is the earliest that I have put the bike away. But the service cycles have come due, and there’s only a few more weeks of riding left.
Was a nice day for a ride.
Chilly enough to warrant a beard, two jackets and the handlebar heaters. But warm enough to enjoy the autumnal colours. And the leaves were vibrant in all their varied hues. Shades of the Group of Seven.
A perfect day to put the bike away.
A perfect day to lock in the memory that has to last all winter long.
