    2 hours in freezing temperatures today, it was dry and sunny so all's good.

    Thought I'd bang a few random alternative cycling pics up for a change..

    Of course the usually quite country roads had now been invaded by the Covid zombies determined to get Boris's recommended one hours daily exercise.
    Even though they were all socially distancing each other like dodgems at the fun fair.

    I know you're way south of Manchester, but did you really cycle all the way to Gatwick?

    Flooded fields are frozen lakes now.

    No rain or wind, dry and sunny.

    Trying to purchase a new pair of size 11.5 /47 cycling shoes with matching cleats and pedals is becoming tiresome.


    Rustled up a damn reasonable "En salada mixed" on my return.

    Baby new potatoes boiled and smothered in butter.
    Thinly diced, red onion, green pepper, cherry tomatoes and some basil.
    Not forgetting a tin of John West tuna and a dollop of mayo, all mixed up.
    Took a few minutes to make.

    And only slightly over a thousand calories.

    Invested in a pair of Shimano pedals with some Muddyfox road bike shoes after much deliberation and intensive online shopping.
    Everything to do with cycling and exercise in general is sold out in the UK due to Covid.

    Anyhow, christened my new road bike kit with startling results!
    I can now climb hills in lesser gears, I'm faster with less effort as my power is focussed.
    It truly is rebirth and renaissance moment with my cycling!
    The only problem is clipping in and clipping out, I think I've got the knack of it now after two hours of trial and error.
    The error part was quite amusing to the observer as I approached a T-junction and abruptly fell over like a domino, check out the video for an amusing comparison.

    People are out and about more now it appears we have broken the back of this pandemic, people are smiling and more inclined to say hello after a tortuous winter lockdown.

    Looking forward to exploring further afield this year, might explore Sheffield, Chester and the Rossendale Valley.

    Keep on peddling!

    Jeez it was fresh in the hills today, frozen tear drops on thy cheek.

    No accidents today,I've managed the knack of clipping in and out now.

    Random machinery shot and mole hills, yep they're out of hibernation.

    The weather's looked nice over the past few days on the telly, but it seems to have been fucking freezing this winter.

    The worst winter in living memory in more than one sense of the word.

    But you'd never get away with those shoes down my parts.

    ^ You should do a Cujo pose just for fun and to get Tax riled up. Put your bike on the kick stand and then lift one leg and rest it on the bike

    Don't forget the bottom of the range brandy. It's all alcohol, so all calories.

    Getting pissed and dancing all night like you might have done 15 years ago is a bit different from getting pissed and copy pasting from 'Metro' all night.

    After the longest Winter on record, well it felt that way.

    We in the UK have been propelled into a glorious Spring.
    21oC today with the aromas of wild garlic, spring lamb shit and daffodils in the air I clipped onto my 3 gear racer and had a spin around the flat Cheshire lanes.

    Wild Geese..

    Ryan Giggs.

    That 'meal' could have done with some carbonara to liven it up a bit.

    Nice pics... my mum told me yesterday that her daffodils are already over. Big difference between the south and up north.
