Yesterday, a full value trundle up and down the Vale of York for my January ride.  I'm entered for Deano's alpine challenge on the 18th but thought I'd better get a DIY in the bag just in case of bad weather and/or not being up to it.

Early start and minor roads meant hardly any traffic as I zig-zagged down to the edge of York.  More traffic there, and on a B road towards Ripon that is obviously used as a rat run by the locals.  A couple of short spells of drizzle, and the wind was getting stronger through the day, but at least by then I was heading back North so mostly behind me.

Getting dark for the last hour or two and colder after mild temperatures earlier in the day, my legs got cold and started to hurt (even more than usual) - should have worn thicker trousers.

Strong winds and lurgy means I've not pedaled a bike all year.
The weekend coming isn't looking promising either, 3 to do this month...
