Calling Belladonna the love of my life would be going a bit too far.
But only a tiny smidgen.
And she is waaaay up there.
But, the beautiful Belladonna is gone.
A cracked frame means this carbon bike is now an accident waiting to happen.
She is irreparable.
And it happened the very day after finally being given an all-clear to ride again following illness and injury that have been another plague to cope with since January.
Despondent is not the word.
But I cannot thank this beautiful bike enough for the sheer, unadulterated joys she gave me.
She has made it hard to ride another bike, though.
But, it’s a great chance to grow and learn.
My deepest thanks go out to JD for enabling Belladonna to come into my life.
