Unless that is you're a) utterly mad b) an off-road fan who can rip it around some trails. Currently I am neither of those (although I am hoping to make inroads to the second).
So despite not making the most of the riding opportunities so far this year, when a break in the weather meant I'd need a dark visor, getting in the car seemed like blasphemy.
The ride wasn't anything epic, nor especially long either. I needed to do some chores and well, I really wanted to get out on the bike. So out I went.
It was chilly, but not cold; Sunny, but not warm; short but not worthless. Simply put, it was an excuse to ride. Sometimes, that's all it takes.
