Cycled to work and back, 33 km.

Almost the perfect cycle commute: bright and sunny but not too cold and with no wind on the way there, and warm and sunny but not too warm and with a following wind on the way home :)

And I saw a Barn Owl while cycling through the Nature Reserve this morning :)

Horrible (cold and foggy) ride to work, and glorious (warm and sunny) ride home. A day of contrasts!

Out for 16.1 km (10 miles) after tea.

Chilly but clear and still out there - perfect cycling weather, and a beautiful sunset :)

Cycled to work and back, 33 km (20 miles).

Beautiful day for cycling, glorious sunshine and little wind. And the birdsong was amazing - loads of summer migrants, especially in the nature reserve: Willow Warblers, Chiffchaffs, Whitethroats, Blackcaps, Reed Warblers and Sedge Warblers :)

First ride of the year (the cycle path has been flooded up until now). Beautiful day - just above freezing and frosty on the way out, but a balmy 13C (55F) on the way back with no wind and a low golden sun making everything glow. I'm going to ache a bit tomorrow, but I found it easier than I was fearing to get back in the groove :)

Out for 17 km (just over 10 miles) at 1430.

First ride of the year :)

Deceptively Spring-like out there today - mild and sunny. Lovely for cycling, but it's too soon to relax - the hard Winter the forecasters predicted could still happen.

I'm doing well with my 'cycle once a week on average' goal - I've four weeks in hand right now :)

I've done just over 60 miles on the bike this week, which is good... but it's sobering to think that in one day on the London to Paris ride I did 85 miles...

Pheasants, Red-legged Partridges, Skylarks, Yellowhammers, and a pair of hares :)

Out for 32 km (20 miles) at 0930.

Lovely Sunday morning ride around the villages - warm sunshine, church bells and the first bumblebee of the year :)

Cycled to work and back today, 34 km (21 miles).

Lovely day for cycling, still and (relatively) mild. My cycle home was blessed with a beautiful sunset, the knowledge that I *wasn't* sitting in the huge traffic snarl-up on the A14 (caused by an accident), and some fine views of a Short-eared Owl hunting over the fields next to the cycle path :)

I *love* riding that bike. It's a hand-built tourer with a light, stiff frame, and it handles beautifully. I bought it to do my London-to-Paris ride 12 years ago - I did my homework before I bought, and I made a good choice. The only problem is that to replace it with an equivalent model these days would set me back a small fortune! Lovely to have something that brings you joy like that :)

The snow and ice have finally gone so I was able to cycle to work today... a tough ride, 10 miles straight into the teeth of a Fen wind is no joke. Still, I made it, and the ride home should be a blast (literally!).

The thing about exercise is that however much it hurts while you're doing it, you never regret having done it once you've finished :)

Now, somebody give me FOOD!

Far preferable to roll into work with 10 miles on the bike under my belt and an endorphin high than grumpy as a result of sitting in traffic queues and dealing with idiot drivers :)

Cycled to work and back, 34 km (21 miles). Knocked a full 5 minutes off my best time so far, although my legs can feel it now!

Beautiful view of a Barn Owl as I cycled through the nature reserve - it was hunting alongside the track, and settled on a fence post. It sat there until I almost reached it and then flapped away across the path.

Decided it was a bit too cold to cycle to work this morning (3 below) so went out on the bike for 10 miles after dinner tonight. Cold out there, only a couple of degrees above freezing, but the stars are *glorious*.

Went out for a quick cycle after dinner - 8.1 km (5 miles). Getting chilly out there!

So, I cycled to work this morning, 17 km (just over 10 miles). Now all I have to do is cycle home again... not sure that 10 miles in the dark is going to be quite so enjoyable!

Lovely morning for it, though. Set off just before dawn and got to work just after sunrise. Beautiful almost-full moon in the sky. Heard a woodpecker and (icing on the cake!) saw a Barn Owl hunting along the side of the track.

A success so far... :)
