Now that was a wet one, not wet stuff from the sky but standing water on the towpath, it seemed that the whole of NCR 5 and the cut was one long 3″ deep puddle. I wished I’d put my overboots on, even my Seal Skinz waterproof socks were overwhelmed by the onslaught. Not too pleasant but that’s the way with towpath pedalling. I’ll be properly equipped tomorrow. It’s still very very gusty too, I can’t judge the direction of the wind to save my life, apart from it always seems to be against me.
Another week of towpath and NCR 5 to come, it feels strange pedalling not to full capacity but staying within my correct heart rate zone for weight loss. But, as I keep on banging on about, this is about weight loss and not being better at cycling!
