Rainy Thursday commute…

Non-cyclists find it hard to understand that cycling in the rain can be an enjoyable experience. With some waterproof clothing, and a little extra care, bad weather isn’t necessarily a problem. The rain this afternoon gave rise to some wonderfully contrasting views of sun and rain, autumnal colour, a rainbow and a gorgeous golden hour over the Swag and Ryders Hayes. It was so lovely I took the long way home…

  • Was there a pot of gold in picture 2?

    Oddly enough, we thought we’d discovered a pot of shite at the end of the rainbow: as we crawled up the M5, the rainbow’s end was on The Public.
