- Cold, dark mornings…
anyone else loving the morning commute at this time of year? 🙂 Crisp and cold enough to wake you up but not so bad you need the full winter gear. Air lovely and clear. Come in feeling refreshed…
…and then see your desk. Still, glad that no-one has worked out how to monetise this yet.

I’ve not seen the sky or even the sun for 3 days now.
Still it’s a perfect temperature for the commute, only problem is the state of the track I use has forced me onto a road which I take no pleasure in using.
Last night though I rode the long way home, an extra 11 miles into the mist and back again.
It could be so much worse 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Anyway, yeah I do enjoy riding at this time of year. I get to put the Lumi to good use on the way home.
Nearly got hit in the face by a bat last night (the flying type not the cricket type). Swooped right down at me and passed my face close enough for me to hear it. I assume it was picking off flies and not actually trying to kill me.
Also nearly got hit by a Range Rover who clearly decided that the pedestrian crossing was advisory and blitzed straight through on a red light. That was slightly less enchanting.Posted 5 years agosamuriMember
Yeah, I enjoyed the last couple of mornings commute in. You know, if I ignore the changing a tube in pitch black, slicing open the end of my finger on the glass in the tyre, spraying blood all over my clothes, gloves and bike, the brain dead drivers who can’t see four flashing lights and a bright yellow jacket, working eleven hours with an hour of cycle commuting on either side, the strong winds, the ice rink paths with their thick layers of wet leaves and the people who wander about on offroad paths at 6 in the morning with absolutely no lighting or reflective clothing on and then get angry when you nearly kill them at 20mph.
And that’s just the good bits.Posted 5 years ago
eople who wander about on offroad paths at 6 in the morning with absolutely no lighting or reflective clothing on and then get angry when you nearly kill them at 20mph.
I saw my first ninja of the season.
Bloke standing on the unlit path, all in black, wearing a full-face black balaclava(!), and carrying a huge sword*.
Fully expected a shuriken in the back of my head as I rode past.

good an ya, all that ride in the winter!
its been cold up here in inverness way , these past few mornings – fog has been pretty dire in the evening ride back, and shows up the problems of the lights i have , just ordered a new brighter one,
for me, its glasses
i cannot stop mine getting steaming up or smeared up in this grizzly rainy/fog – and of course wearing winter gloves means its hard to clean them, if i dont have them my eyes run!Posted 5 years agosamuriMember
