As some of you already know my owner has not been able to ride me for the past four weeks. When I first heard this, I assumed I would be allowed to have the time off too, but she had other plans for me. I have been a 'trek' leader, taking out the tourists on the many rides around the area. Here I am today, just about to embark on an 'experienced' ride. That's always bad news - it means I have to cover more ground much faster in the same amount of time as a 'beginner' ride where I am allowed to plod around and look at the scenery (or grass!).
