Friday 17th 38-41F, 3-5C, heavy overcast, very light winds with thick mist. There is nothing wrong with cycling in thick mist. Nor any other "difficult" conditions for that matter. It is having to share the roads with deluded psychopaths which provides the real danger. Familiarity breeds contempt for the rest of the human race. I walked an unusual route to try and capture misty scenes. It was incredibly quiet with the now-distant traffic hushed to absolute silence. I was getting rather warm on the slight rises so removed my hat and gloves. The Great tits were singing their see-saw, mating songs for the first time this year. The mist is thinning now so I'm being allowed out on the tricycle. It's a good job I'm running 25mm tyres or I might never make it out of the quaggy drive! I was leaving footprints in the normally rock hard surface as the permafrost turns the gravel to mush. Late morning ride returning heavily laden. Light crosswind aided 16-18mph going. Only 17 miles.
Saturday 18th 39F, +4C, heavy overcast, light winds. Just a walk to the village and back. Late afternoon ride for 7 miles.
Sunday 19th 39F, +4C, thick mist, incredibly heavy overcast with rain and wind. Nice!
