For the first time in too long a time I got myself out of bed and on my bike and did a predawn launch towards the park. It was a beautiful morning for a ride, cool without being cold and both windless and clear. Clear is best for catching the morning light. The only rain on this whole parade came in the form of another cyclist. He passed me headed towards the park. I didn’t mind this, because it was still a bit murky in the predawn light and I was being careful. The pavement on Wydown is horrible these days. What I did mind though was when the same cyclist passed me on Wydown on the way home. I think that twice in one ride is a bit too much.
