Riding Home

Did I say I'd started riding home on the road?
a) taking too long on the longer, darker, muddy towpath
b) less likely someone'll jump me in the dark

This road biking is giving me all sorts of new conundrums though with fellow cyclists..
To overtake / not overtake? Say hello / ignore?

..and then how aggressive should I be with crappy drivers? Driving too close always gets a shout and a wave. Cars sitting in MY cycle lane definitely get a "what are you doing you muppet" shrug of the shoulders and turning left across me.?  that's going to get them everything I can muster!

Sealskinz socks and overshoes for Christmas have sorted out my toe problems.
Very wet, cold and muddy this week.
Nothing untoward apart from ridiculously windy......
