Night cycler....

Great ride in and then my first home in complete darkness.
My new lights are amazing.. Electron Terra 2's. Passed a few other cyclists who definitely had lights envy!!
I think I dazzled a few people and once I'd got used to the dark, slightly forboding body of water by my side it was an enjoyable commute.
No time to do any more cycling this week so this boring blog will be quiet for a while ;)

A guide

If you fancy riding the canal from Liverpool to Leeds (or vice versa)...

Good to be back

Well, that was fun. Beaming from ear to ear as I got back onto the towpath.

Not dark enough to really enjoy my brilliant new lights though!

Sad to see one of the swans was missing but saw plenty of other things including very close up with a couple of dozy herons. Nearly ran over a stupid duck.

Loads of cyclists on the way home so hopefully will still be a busy route when the nights draw in.

Set up phone to auto text home when i leave and then when half way home (oh, i'm such a geek1)

Day off tomorrow because need to take OH's car for an MOT.

Did I mention how great my new lights are?

I'm back!

It turned out that the bike was insured by payment protection on my credit card! Woohoo!

New bike purchased. Back on it tomorrow.

Looking forward to seeing the canal again but not too sure about cycling along it in the dark ... although i've got some mega lights!!!

.... the muggers will definitely see me coming! ...   :(
