On my pedal home last night along the canal I found that the towpath was closed for building work. Bummer. Added bummer for 8 weeks! This means that I now need to find a new route home on my MTB commuter. The towpath is closed between 0730hrs and 1730hrs, so it only affects my evening pedal home.
I came off the canal by the Nautical Club the scene of a few Rememberence Day festivities when I was in the Army. (Thanks Matelots). Anyway, I’m digressing. I could see a direct route home down the Ring Road and up the Bristol Road. Very heavy traffic, I knew there was a back road, but I wasn’t quite sure exactly which way to get me back on the canal past the building work. So map studying today to nail the route home.
Another yearly first this morning too! Mitts instead of full fingered gloves, no waterproof socks, just normal socks and a T-Shirt over my base layer instead of my Hi-Vis jacket! Whoop whoop! Spring is here!
How good is that?
