As far as riding buddies go, it is all solo for me this season. I'm not an organizer, so no events to draw in people from outside. And none of my friends ride, apart from one. Hopefully he'll be joining me in Gymkhana by the end of this season, once he is sorted with his own bikes.
Its a sad, lonely world out there
Did have a nice chat with a bicyclist the other day, while actually waiting for my brakes to cool off, LOL
It does seem to be a solitary pastime. I always have a chuckle at our vids, from the outside it must look strange to see a lonely rider in an empty car park at the edge of town riding round & round & round....
I take comfort knowing that somewhere in the world as we speak, somebody is sweating & cursing & attracting strange looks from passers by.
