14th April (#35)

This morning was back to 3 layers including the winter jacket and winter gloves + scarf & tights. All the way I was cloaked in a film of cold although my core was warm in the 1°C morning. Although I went the short route via Sheering, the road was busy with cars; over 40 in the first 10km despite leaving 30min earlier than I have over the last couple of weeks. It looks like more the same for the rest of the week-cool mornings with it getting up to ~ 10°C at home time.

This means packing a pair of shorts for the return leg which I did today. Double the washing burden. As the journey in was short, I planned a longer route for the afternoon. It was cool still but an acceptable 8°C under clear blue skies. I shed a layer underneath my winter jacket and it was just right. The countryside is the place to ride when it’s like that, regardless of the temperature. Uplifting.

I stopped in a sheltered spot to have a breather and soak in the afternoon sun. If only it was another 5°C warmer, I could’ve been perfect. I took my time because it was my early finish day and survey my view. I thought that if the summer continues as Spring has so far then it will be a good one even though there will (probably) be no cricket.
