I was not looking forward to the ride today. Less so when I found that my trainers were still damp and when I put my waterproof coat on, the inside of the sleeves were still wet. Yuk.
By the time we had cycled to the doctors, in Horsford, the outer of my waterproof was totally dry and the inside of the sleeves were bearable. By the time we passed the airport, the inners were dry. Trainers still a bit damp though, they were dry by the time we headed back.
Going the long way to the city made a change, we have found a faster way to the docs but we really need a mtb or hybrid to go that route, Kenn’s Sun would dislike it, my Giant would simply stop dead and die on the spot if I asked it to take that route!!
Once in town is was the usual job hunting, taking forms to the DWP, visiting Debbie and meeting up with our Mark for a coffee.
We headed home the usual (long) route and I enjoyed it a lot. Kenn not so happy. We got home dry but tired. Ken has noticeably lost weight with all this cycling, I have found my jeans to be annoyingly big. I must invest in a belt. Next ride scheduled for Saturday afternoon/evening as we want to go to an event in the city. Best get checking the lights again.
