Tender tooshys, helmet hair and sore knees!
We are all in this together. It's the human condition.
When a human being sits for 126 miles their tooshys get tender. I have watched our group opt for the higher less comfortable chairs to avoid bending their knees. I've witnessed ladies using the one cheek method of sitting. This side saddle approach to sitting is common across the sexes and fitness levels.
"Whoa nelly "... And other colorful language can be heard far and wide when first our seats meet our seats.
Those who know me know I'm not a make up wearer...never have been. There seems to be a lot of concern about hair dryers too. I applaud my traveling women friends who "put their "faces on" before sweating it all off by mile 10.
I'm also impressed by the hair drying and hair spraying before helmets. I am happy with the post ride shower and air dry look...but I admire those who kick the bicycling beauty regimen up a notch!
I'm embracing Helmet Hair!
Let the tangles and sunscreen prevail!
Most of the cabins are below deck... They are rooms resembling a walk in closets with cots! Just enough for a bicycle trip thru the Nederland's...
The short steep stairs down to the room become Mount Everest after 126 miles. Your mind goes to "if I walk side ways, it may hurt less", "do I really need my camera?", "on second thought, I may need another wine before considering a visit to the room".
From atop the stairs...peering down, this is the conversation in my head motivated by my knees.
Today we travel 28 miles ...
I plan on cheating again. Bruges by mid day!
