It seems like ages. More than 3 years, anyhow. This new job makes it a little more complicated because of dress code and inflexible hours but I've been ironing out the snags and I'm so happy to be back in the saddle, so to speak. I didn't realize how much regular riding affected my mood. It was either a bike or antidepressants again. The bike is much easier to take, without the negative side effects, if you don't count helmet hair.
