It was another cold and windy morning, but while staying in bed was an attractive option, I knew I’d be angry with myself if I was that lazy. So on the basis that any exercise is obviously better than none, I forced myself out the door and down the road, even if it would only be for 5 miles. And of course the minute I was on the bike, I was very pleased to be setting off. The wind was very strong again, what we lack in long hills in this part of the world we make up for in headwinds. I went the other way around on my route this morning, and had some nice sections on the return leg where the tailwind propels you along with ease at around 22 mph, way above my normal capabilities. Overall, feeling good!
I think I frightened this Duck, is it a Duck? I’m not sure, but I did get a bit concerned that he was flying on the wrong side of the road, and was hoping no cars would come around the bend at the same time. Fortunately he found his escape with a gap into the field
