Lovely weather for the time of year

A year ago

A year ago

Yesterday was a mild and sunny day, so I took a spin out in the countryside, stopping at the Carpenters Arms for a light lunch, of pumpkin and parsnip soup and a ham and cheese toasted sandwich. It was great to enjoy the chance to get out on the bike again -- as it seemed did a number of the lycra crowd, though fortunately they don't seem to hunt in packs at this time of year.

What a contrast with a year ago, when needing to go into town, I wrapped up with long-johns, heavy gloves, multiple layers, goggles, just leaving my nose exposed -- and regretting that for the first couple of miles before getting properly warmed up.
