A chilly loop of the campsies on the tandem.  But we both enjoyed getting out, and not least the roll & sq sausage from The Hatch in Killearn.
Hud oan.
Roll And sausage?

That's suspiciously east coast logic.

Surely not. The first time I heard the construction “roll and sausage/cheese/bacon” was when I worked in Weir Pumps in Glasgow in the late ‘70’s.

About 30 miles, mostly in the dark, cold and fog.  Lots of other cyclists out in the lanes around Lechlade.  Very thick fog on the Kempsford-Hannington road and a superb moon.
And Darkness and Decay and the Coronavirus held illimitable dominion over all.

every outing i do on a vintage bike it gets something upgraded (the most awkward/annoying part), i'm pretty certain at this rate only the frameset will remain unchanged :)

it fits me well, rides quite nice though and after i swap the saddle out, it'll be under 9kg - acceptable for a steel bike.

The weegie is Roll ON sausage, totally nonsensical.

Not just Weegie, surely. As a native Fifer, I can still enjoy a piece on jam.

I planned to do a 20 miler in Richmond Park to bring up the 100 miles for the week and 500 miles for the month. Unfortunately I got a bad case of the  Raynaud's before I had even got the bike out, so I had to make do with an extremely painful 10 miles round the local streets. Oh well, there is always tomorrow.
Mustn't grumble in the circumstances .

Just over 40km with 800m after work. It was cold towards the end, -1 according to the Garmin. Should've brought the big gloves.

A bit over a mile, on the trike to pick up some food cooked by others, which is a treat.

My usual Friday afternoon 20 miler. Cold - average of 1 according to the Garmin - with fog and a light northerly breeze. 15 minutes of cold face, 20 of cold fingers and from the hour mark cold toes. Hey ho.

looking out at the foggy, damp Fens this morning, and greasy road surfaces, with a surefire need to clean the bike afterwards, I have a severe case of CBA and will go on the turbo instead.

Felt like the first proper winter ride today - grey all day, a couple of hours of cold rain, and the temperature hovering just above freezing. Grotty, gritty stuff, but I had a good loop of a few favourite tracks around Teesdale, and back through Barnie and Whorlton.
