Well damn my hide it's been a beautiful day out there today! On Monday the day started quite cold and so when it warmed up later on I was still resplendent in black Ron Hill's and a long sleeved T shirt. I ended up with my trousers rolled up to mid-calf in order to avoid my legs melting but ended up resembling something from Pineapple Dance Studio as a result! Today I wore shorts from the off but was still hotter than hot on the way home. However, I'm not going to moan about it - I'll be lapping up this hot spell because I know that on all of those freezing, dark commutes in the winter, I'll be praying for days like today!
There were a lot of bikes out on the way home too. Some commuters I guess but loads just out enjoying the sun. I'm finding cyclists quite an unfriendly bunch on the whole though. Strange as there was lots of cameraderie between my colleagues and I on our weekend adventure. Whenever I pass another cyclist going either way, I smile and say hello although it's rare that my greeting is returned. There's no reason that two strangers should be best friends just because they choose the same mode of transport, of course. However a little friendly courtesy never hurt anyone.
Walkers are friendly, runners are friendly, bikers are friendly so why not cyclists? Car drivers all seem to hate each other though and that's no way to be.
Life's too short and the weather too good!
