New padded trousers too..... which are nice! Cold weather outfit taking shape although toes still cold.

Smoke anyone?

I reckon 30% of the people I passed on the towpath last night were smoking a joint.

Interestingly, nearly everyone I passed was also wearing dark clothing and so very easy to crash into..  but I didn't!

Good job.....

..... I forgot to make a sandwich for the homeless chap.... he wasn't there! 


How cold?

Hmmmn think I need to prepare for winter.

Hands and feet need some attention. My Goretex socks are leaking and my

fingerless gloves are... well..... fingerless!

After a hot shower my toes are still cold :(

Anyhow, moaning over!

Brer Fox

Saw my first towpath fox tonight on what was a hard, wet, windy ride home. Brrrrrrr.


Oh, why did I race past that other cyclist this morning? Legs are now tired and it's only Monday lunchtime.....

Anyhow, plenty of food and fruit onboard. Heating at work is on so kit already dry. Looking forward to a clean ride home tonight.

... nothing of note today apart from the chap in a combat jacket near esholt and the homeless person sleeping under the bridge nearer to leeds (at least I hope he was homeless and sleeping rather than dead! no. he had a bottle of water and a bag. Must have been sleeping!!?... anyhow, I nearly rode into him.)

Wet wet wet

Woo hoo. Wettest ride so far but it was great.

Heating not on at work though so changing back into wet clothes tonight was, err..... fun!

Lights were playing up (went strobe like) but all ok on way home.

Getting there..

2 trips this week. Nothing of interest to note (I told you this was a boring blog)

Very muddy today though..
... which was great!

Looking forward to cleaning my bike tomorrow. Is that a bit odd?
