So this morning I set off at 9am to go to the velodrome to meet Anna, she had plotted a nice looking 50mile loop that I had saved on my garmin so she didn't have to try and remember it. My legs were taking a while to get going and after I while I worked out that I was cycling into a headwind. I arrived on the dot of 10 though so I was happy. While waiting for Anna I got my phone out to let Ali know I was there fine and there was a message on my phone explaining that she had managed to break her bike getting it out of her flat! I'm sure she'll post all about it on her blog. I was left with a decision then, to go straight home, do the planned loop or do something else. I have to say I just wanted to go home I have been so un-motivated and today was no different. I thought I'd save the loop to do with Anna, in that mood going further south isn't the best plan on my own and I didn't have lunch - no I am incapable of going into a pub on my own, sorry. So I headed towards Ashton looking at the hills, somehow I ended up back in Ashton after a loop so headed towards Oldham, then Shaw, onto Rochdale, Middleton and then home. It worked out well and I got a good ride and enjoyed it.
