Lunchtime training

I have managed to get out for a ride each lunchtime so far this week, I was going stir crazy after a week of being stuck indoors due to the weather, I can handle rain but 30mph wind is too much.

It has been noticeable how quickly everything is drying out, the fields out of the village that were flooded seem to be drying nicely

I have continuing my quest to photograph derelict buildings and found these two this week.

One of the sadder things that cycling does is that it brings you closer to road kill. Today I rode past a dead weasel and a young kestrel that had obviously been struck by a car, quite upsetting.

Lunchtime ride.

I popped out for a quick ride at lunchtime, something I do regularly. It looked nice and sunny so I thought it was a good idea. I hadn't realised quite how windy it was! It was a real battle geting to the next village about 3 miles away, but really quick coming back :-)
