November 14, 2008

time to hang up the helmet

Well, I finally decided the cold and damp combined with the scary traffic in the dark was too much for me. I have ditched the Brommie for the winter. I am determined to get back in the saddle as soon as the nights get lighter.

The weather didn't bother me too much but I knew it would get worse - it was the traffic. Had a few close shaves as, despite my very bright jacket and lights, drivers seem to get totally blind in the dark.

Missing the ride already actually but I am walking from Canley to the Uni so should still keep fit and get some air in my lungs every day.

May or may not find anything to blog about until the crocuses start peeping so, have a good Christmas!
