It has been a really lovely week of spring weather, sunny and starting to get warm. I’ve been adding an extra mile or so to the route to/from work.
Thursday afternoon we were both off, so we rode out on the solo’s to Scorton. Friday was another nice day so I decided shorts were in order plus my lighter weight jacket. It was very pleasant in the morning but I arranged to meet Jayne at the pub after work. By the time we left, the sun had gone down and it was freezing! I could barely feel my hands and feet when we got home.
I rode over to Simon’s on Saturday morning to help put his bike back together. He had a nasty crash last week, trashing his fork, bars and saddle. We did what we could but struggled with the crown race. I spent the afternoon fettling mine and Jayne’s road bikes.
Sunday we decided to head out to Chipping on the tandem, but after the first two hills felt a detour to Scorton and less climbs would be a better bet.
All in all a very good week
173 miles for the week
1065 for the year to date, still 315 miles down though
