I love riding. It's my favourite form of exercise. And meditation.

My working life is full of travelling and not necessarily the glamorous kind, but it does come with meals. Many, many of them. Some in the car, or the hotel, at the presentation and in between.

One side of the coin adds to my beltline, the other to my physical and mental state. So, imagine my dismay upon being informed that I'd need to work from Upington for five days, including a weekend, and thus nixing my usual Sunday ride. This was a disaster.
