A week after my self inflicted bike crash injuries I got back in the saddle today and had a gentle cycle into Reading. I can report that I did wear my bike helmet today even though it was not very comfortable. I think I might have to invest in a new hat. I have healed pretty well and think I have probably escaped without any lasting scars. Reading itself was quite interesting today as all I seemed to hear walking around was couples arguing. Was this a sign of the current stressful times in 2011 with the bleak economic situation, was it just a lot of unhappy couples out in Reading or maybe I just seemed to pick up on bickering couples today??
