I was on call all day Saturday so effectively a prisoner in my own home. Plans to go riding on Sunday were scuppered by Manchester being in semi-light all day under a gloomy cloud of grey that as well as setting a dull depressing tone outside sent a downwards drizzle of rain throughout most of the day. Add to this that it was autumnal cold, made for a weekend spent indoors when I’d rather have been outdoors.
Woke up this morning to find that it was no warmer, but that the sun was shining. In fact it’s great riding weather. Of course, I am riding today. To the office, my desk and sitting in work. Typical. Of course some sensible people were in Scotland riding bikes this weekend and will probably be coming back shortly to say how great it was.
