Good and bad news
Good: I finally took the new bike (which still needs a name) for a ride this morning. I bought it over a month ago, but a combination of persistent knee pain, late hours at work/my own failure to install lights on it/my fear of riding in the dark without lights, and laziness have meant that it’s just been hanging out in a corner of the bedroom, feeling unloved. This morning I promised I’d leave the office before dark, wheeled the bike downstairs, and hopped on.
Bad: I forgot gloves. Morning temps: 37. Fingers: still a bit frozen two hours later.
