Commuter Chat-

double the number on the paths today – now up to a giddy eight fellow cyclists. The problem with quiet cyclepaths is that nature starts to reclaim the paths. I have had two near misses with squirrels in two days. Has anyone ever run over a squirrel on a bike? I was wondering how slippy they are? Or are they more crunchy than slippy?

Commuter Chat-

Captureback up to 27 on the path today contra-commuting from Leith to Roseburn. So hot I had to take my gloves off. I think I will be back in shorts if this carries on, which looks likely. Hottest December on record?

Rain Chat

Commuter Chat-13 fellow cyclists this morning, all well wrapped up.Says it all really. I started to get a sore neck after a few miles & realised I had my head crunched into my shoulders, it is quite hard to relax with a small trickle of water down your neck.. I have also realised that my waterproof jacket isn’t anymore. Trousers fared better!
