Ride: Lochside to the Airport loop
Date: September 3
A tale of two bums. If you read this you know that I admire the female form and all its bits. Tastefully I hope. Today it was the best of times and it was the...okay it was just pretty good. Apologies to Dickens. I parked at our usual new spot on Royal Oak and headed up the Lochside. At the light, waiting to cross was a young woman with the most amazing form on a bike as seen from behind. As I was not yet warmed up and afraid of injury, I found it necessary to follow her for 4 kilometers. My ride was just started and I was happy. I followed the usual route out to Sidney and headed for the loop around the airport. Again I was forced to follow an athlete as she powered around the bike path on wheeled skiis. It would have been too dangerous to pass. I observed her perfect technique and was impressed. What a day!
