A limerick a week #105

Dear Diary… 

… went on a 38 mile round-trip cycle ride…

…set off from Newton Stewart to Port William all hale and hearty…

…a bit nippy so wore unpadded winter bib tights…

…didn’t wear proper padded cycling shorts underneath this time…

…tried instead some swanky new padded sports boxers for cyclists…

…big mistake…

…no; massive mistake…

…in trouble before the halfway stop in Port William…

…somehow got there…

…spent 45 minutes drinking tea; struggled to get back on bike…

…barely able to sit over another 18 miles of cracked, broken and pot-holed tarmac…

…quick stop at Wigtown on the return for an ice-cream…

…didn’t know whether to eat it or sit on it…

#ShouldHaveBoughtTwo.

While out on a bike ride one day
On the Machar of old Galloway
The absence of padding
To my rear-end cladding
Left my a**e in complete disarray.
