Well, hello. I haven’t seen you in a while.
I’m back. Again. This time with a seven-week-old baby, though. She’s awesome.
I haven’t been doing much riding, as you can imagine, because in the last few months I’ve either been very pregnant or recovering from birth and caring for a newborn.
I’m finally getting back on the bike. My bits have healed enough to let me ride, even if it’s only for 16km!
A couple of weekends ago I woke up nice and early to get to a “ciclotour” in the Mugello Valley north of Florence. But it wasn’t me who was riding. It was Ged. 90km and 1400m climbing. Details here.
Baby and I kissed him goodbye as he hopped on his bike, then we didn’t see him until lunchtime. She and I walked around for a while before hanging out in the car for a little nap.
Ged did well. Really well. And he enjoyed it, which is what counts. It was really beautiful weather too, which always helps.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Sunday-morning ride without a wedding. Oh, Italy.
The ride was only 7euros, which included rest stops, a goody bag at the end, and a lunch of ravioli, crostata, fruit and WINE. Wine at the end of a bike ride.
I’m definitely doing this next year. Ged can babysit. 🙂
