It's a trap!


I’m riding Saturday but need to take things a bit easy”. That’s what Denis said on Wednesday.

Good news is my knee seems to have healed itself. But probs riding Sunday rather than Saturday”. Wrote Ed on the same day.

The ride went up in the Kingston Wheelers forum. 

I should have suspected something was not as I was told. The ride was announced as K2. That is not “easy”. 

On Friday Ed wrote in the whatsapp group “I may now join tomorrow”.

A message that was quickly followed by a message from Denis saying “[no] longer need to take it quite so easy tomorrow”.

I quickly checked the KW forum, and the ride didn’t have any takers. It was a trap. The Kinston Wheelers k and I fell in it. 

So, how was the ride?

Well, it was short and flat (https://www.unbiciorejon.com/2019/02/javiers-ride-classification-criteria.html) but it certainly was not easy.

"Why does this route have so many ramps and why is Ed pushing the pace in every single one of them" not easy. "Thank God Denis got a puncture" not easy. “Double latte at the H’artisan” not easy.
