Leaving hibernation

We’re a third of the way through March, and daffodils are out, the sun is high in the sky and spring is in full effect. I left in the afternoon for a quiet, fast spin – I ended up on a 45-miler around Lichfield, Croxall, Edingale, Harlaston, Whittington, Weeford and Shenstone.

The weather was beautiful – a lovely hazy sun was physically warm, and I was out in teeshirt and shorts. There was little wind, and the lanes and byways were teeming with other cyclists, and people out walking.

The day ended in a decent sunset, too. After so much rain, the joy of speeding down dusty, dry lanes is immeasurable. Today I felt like I’d left a period of hibernation.

This time last year we were in the interregnum between two heavy snowfalls, and spring didn’t seem to come until well into April.
