^ wot he said.
Except I’ve not been riding for a few weeks. So I’ll try to get some in for the long weekend coupled with walks or runs. I’m riding to work tomorrow for the first time in a while, but it’s only about 6km one way. Will extend perhaps on the route home.

I’ve not done much since finishing Coastrek a few weeks ago, just busy, life, other things, and riding mojo is at an all time meeeeeeeeeehhhhhhh.

I’ll find it again ;)

I have no motivation to ride, and my health prevents it anyway. Riding with a mask on for the non-strenuous parts of my ride would be less than ideal. A 25 km radius means I am still stuck in the metropolitan area of Melbourne, so no benefit of being out in nature to be had either. I can't even remember my last ride, which may have been the last of my life, it was most likely a mere shopping trip. What a way to go out.

Matt,
Are you OK?
You don't sound good.

I have some physical health problems, which prevent me from any serious exertion, and I doubt they will improve by themselves. Lockdown rules also limit physical activity outside, so not much I can do about that either. I have other interests I can engage in at home but I still miss the sense of freedom, exhilaration and well being that comes from riding in the outdoor, natural world.

Just venting, I guess. Thank you for your concern though.

5 km limit to be lifted tonight (Tuesday 27th July 2021) at midnight. A little more freedom, thankfully.
