This was a pretty excellent ride, despite the cold weather.
It’s a route I know well, so I just followed my nose. Very little traffic - in fact just the odd car, a few walkers, and one or two other cyclists.
There was a very thin layer of frost on the road for much of the length of the ride, and it was quiet enough that my wheels and I made a soothing ‘shhhhh’ sound as I rode along.
Fortunately the frost wasn’t black ice, and I didn’t have a single slip. I’d packed a sandwich and managed to ride all the way down to Winslow and back, making it a 36km/23 mile ride in all - I felt rather pleased with myself.
Here are a few more snapshots from the day:
The route can be found on my MapMyRide page, if interested. (I had recorded the route using the MapMyRide app, but it failed, meaning I had to draw this one manually. I’m using Strava now instead.)
Platforms as a Service are fantastic for enabling technology companies to explore new ideas and then run then at scale... until they change their policies.
Logging is so important!"It works on my machine"
Bancroft Roman VillaI love this place. It is right on our doorstep and sits in a beautiful park.
Today's office. Okay, not quite. But a decent temporary setup after work.
