Back on the road at long last...

Not even dense fog could stop me from getting a couple of days riding in during the Christmas to New Year lull.

Thanks to Green Wheel Cycles in Peterborough I was led'd up to the gills this morning to meet Steve, a fellow Yaxley Rider.

After toughing it out on the hills yesterday we were happy to keep away from traffic and hit the fenland droves.

It was a chilly morning and despite it not raining we were barely a mile down the road before we were soaking and I was suffering.

The good thing about the single speed is that you can get to the bath and a cup of tea quicker after a ride, because the maintenance is much more minimal.

The bad thing comes when you are suffering and you dont have any gears to help you out.

Still we toughed it out and had a bloody good chat whilst we battled the increasing wind and cold.

Its good to be back in the warm though now !
