Couldn't face another mud bath this morning, so took the CX bike out on slicks to have a look at the flooding here (Herefordshire, River Wye). It's epically bad.
All of that used to be a field. It's lapping up against the road edge. Roads are mostly rivers and twice I had to turn back. The first time I attempted to ford this:
When it looked like my bottle cage was about to float off, I set a course for the shore! Didn't make it tho and had very wet legs/feet for the last hour.
I've seen flooding here before but never this bad. The roads are in a shocking state as well.
It was good to get out and put some miles in, but it made me realise how long it's going to take to dry out. More rain tomorrow
