A record of my cycling trips in Britain and abroad


Autumn Arrives

Yes, autumn is here. I cycled to work this morning wearing a cycling tshirt with a long sleeve top over that; I think that’s the first time I’ve done so since Easter - and I was still chilly! I might treat myself to some new midweight cycling gloves, too; the ones I currently use in autumn and spring date aren’t proper cycling gloves, so they have no padding. They do an ok job of keeping the wind off, but I’ve had them since Cambridge days (I can remember buying them sometime before my alps trip), and the cuff is getting rather slack, which tends to leave an uncomfortable breeze around my wrists. Unfortunately I haven’t yet found a bike shop near here with a good range of clothing, so I may have to make an online order.
