I'm with the last few posts. I havent ridden more than 3 times since April. It hasnt stopped raining since then and the only places I have to ride are under water... add ontop of that a 1year baby and that's me fairly snookered!. I'm still out with my boys twice a day, every day without fail. Even if I'm under pressure with the baby in the car, I still manage to give them both two minutes of my time for a scratch and a chat.
A horse is not a bike that you pull out of the shed whenever you want to ride it.
OP - I don't want you to feel "ganged up on" as that was not the intention of my initial post. Quite possibly you didn't mean the post to come out the way it did, but I'm just a bit suprised that you haven't responded at all.
Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.
