What I think about when I think about riding

I’ve just bought Murakami’s book, “What I talk about when I talk about running” and am debating whether there would be a market for a book by me called “What I think about when I think about riding.”

Of course, the fact that I am not a master japanese novelist renowned for my stylish and profound prose may count against me. Also the fact that what I was thinking about this morning was “What I think about when I think about riding” means that if I think too hard I will disappear in a puff of Escherian logic.

Also this morning I was thinking that in all the advice and guidance and training I’ve ever seen, no-one has ever suggested that on riding round a corner I should be prepared to stop on account of a large black Labrador having a dump in the middle of the road, attended by conscientious owner clutching a plastic bag.

    good Observation tho' it clearly was a Lab !

  5. I have had many thought provoking sojourns while riding but back in 91 I had a bit of a spill. In that one second before I hit the ground, I had a tidal wave of thought which was mind blowing. I only wish I could remember what I thought about.
