A lot of people change from trainers or similar to party shoes if they've walked or driven. I remember going to a party with some flatmates in 1995 or thereabouts, it was only 100m or so to the party, when we got there flatmate changed her impressive knee-length semi-outrageous "walking" boots for completely outrageous thigh high ones with heels made from guitar necks (or something like that)!
I do not ride a great big Mercian, gangster tanwalls, fixed cog in the back.

To the girls school and back.... Lots

Drop off and home this morning

Back to pick up youngest and home

Home for about 20 minutes then back for the eldest who had a club. I'd have stayed and read outside if it wasn't so chuffing cold

Physio, holiday shop, supermarket and home the long way. Started out close to zero, drenched with sweat by the end.

Had to drop a colleges van for service today so took bike to work and got a little cycle back from the garage and then to collect it later. Bikes still at work so hopefully a little lunchtime ride tomorrow

Up to Bream to pick up my prescription.  Not arrived so same again tomorrow or Thursday I guess.
Since I'm out anyway added a couple of reps of the Parkend, Bream & Whitecroft loop.

To the allotment this morning with a hoe strapped to my bike. Lovely and quiet.  Saw people forming a queue outside Aldi but looked calm and seen the csr park busier before all this crazyness. Should have twigged why it was so easy on way there as ride back was into the weekend wind
