Two Swallows Don't Make a Summer...

15 Apr 2013

…but my cycling tan is going to bed down nicely, I think. Ouch!

Great bike ride yesterday to The Green Man in Thriplow - recommended.

I saw this year’s first swallows on they way: presumably they’d been riding the strong winds and decided that the weather had finally got warm enough to cross the English Channel.

For the interested, here is some evidence of how windy it was. Cycling downhill while pedalling, you’d normally expect to be accelerating, rather than maxing out at about 12mph. The payoff (which I didn’t get a lot of, yesterday) is that you can cruise between 25 and 30 mph on the flat with the wind in yer sails.
