I don’t usually work on a Saturday but went in work to support a revision event for upcoming medical examination finals in March. Faculty are all volunteers and a few of them showed their true colours by not attending. It made the day feel chaotic although the students got a lot out of it.
I rode 8km to work from the club into 46mph headwind gusts. I thought that taking the river trail would afford shelter and avoidance of falling branches. I was wrong about the shelter. It was a hard slog and required a lot of care not to end up in the water but at least it was short.
The ride back was a two layered spin in 9°C with a helpful tailwind that caressed me back to van. These odd days of comfort away from the cold are a tease. I try to stop thinking, hoping that spring is around the corner when it is mild like this in February but I cant help it.
Please Spring, come sooner…
