after a few days of getting back into commuting after time off from work it was time for a night ride. there had been some heavy showers all day but the sky was clear as we set out at 1930. lights fitted and ready for the already drawing in of the nights, it seems such a short time since the beginning of March and the thrill of daylight getting longer, ah well time to embrace the dark. lights were needed by 2030 although because of the clear skies it never got completely dark. Ian was caught out a couple of times by over grown branches and ended up biffed into the folliage, luckily because it’s so wet, both times he had a soft landing. it was incredibly wet and muddy and by the end of the ride we were both plastered in mud. not really what you’d expect from an evening ride in late August
ride 120
18 miles
total 2227
commute 632
