Alone in the snow

On my own this morning, Matt is globetrotting. The snow has come and gone all week, so I wasn't sure if I would go out. It was snowing as I went to bed.

I looked out of the window, it didn't seem too bad, I checked some local Facebooks groups and they said the roads were okay. I was going to ride a lot off road but didn't do much in the end, just in case I came off. It might be a while before I was found if the fall resulted in an injury.

I also tried to avoid twisty hills, not easy when you live at the top of one.

I only did about ten miles, not enough for my hands and feet to start protesting about the cold.

As always I am glad I went out, it also resulted in the picture above. I only decided to cycle this way at the last minute.

I lent the bike up to take the picture, but it fell over. As I was picking it up I heard a car stop behind me. I looked around and the driver was leaning across the passenger seat calling through the lowered window to see if I was okay. I thanked her and said I was okay. It made a very pleasant change from near constant close passes.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring?
