Got up this morning, looked out of window; Grey! Windy!Cold! Do I really want to climb on my bike for 20 miles today - NO!
So I slowly get myself together and get my bike and gear into my van eventually setting off, darn it I forgot to put my cycling shoes in so turned round ,went back home and got them, getting very grumpy now.
Left my leg warmers in Eds car on the last evening ten so cold legs then. Met Roger at the start complaining of the cold along with everyone else. So clipped in and ready to go and off I go, Ah! into the icy cold wind, cold head icy teeth what am I doing? Eventually the cold pains subside and and I get into my rhythm (slow but a rhythm). Nice when the wind is behind but cruel when ahead, so slow time this week 73.31 (36.18/37.13).
Heater on full blast on the way home.
