good things come in …

Pretty random packages – like this Book Crossing book which arrived this evening on my front doorstep. For those unfamiliar with the concept, Book Crossing lets you read and then pass on your books, following their (hopeful) journey through the world. This is the first time a book has crossed my path, and really – it couldn’t be more fitting. For this morning, after a few rounds the round at Daisy Hill, my riding companion left me with a seriously pimped up mountain bike with no wheels attached.

Now I can build my self-efficacy with the fine art of Mountain Bike Maintenance. Seriously.

A stranger just dropped off a mountain bike maintenance book to me.

The world is sweet. And potentially small.

Speaking of small worlds, on Friday evening I managed to run into the miles of smiles as ridden by Kristina, who happened to be hanging about quite close to the Brisbane Development Circle meeting that was getting together at the newly opened Rabbit Hole where I might spend all of next week.

Seems Kristina rides a wee bit… Seems she is also looking for a challenger on the road to becoming the world’s fastest woman to circumnavigate the world by bicycle. Any takers?

Seems like I might have to ask her some more questions…Funny who you can meet on a bike.
