Saturday 14 September 2013: Future veg

This morning we went for a bike ride before the nasty weather arrived. I took my road bike and my better half went on her hybrid. So basically we both had a faster bike than our recent holiday. It was our first time seriously out on bike since our holiday. It's noticeable how terrible our roads are in the UK when compared to comparable roads in Brittany. It's noticeable how much more space French car drivers give you on the road too! You can also really feel the difference between a fast road bike and a hybrid...

Anyhow good stats for the route, even if we did make one mis-turn and added on an extra kilometre. Rolling time 2:04 hours, distance 46 km, Average speed 22.2 km/h and maximum speed 62.5 km/h.

After the ride it as the more hum-drum of laundry and ironing - we've not caught up since we got back from our holiday. The weather was pretty cold and miserable on the bike ride and hasn't changed since we got back. It's hard to know what the weather is going to be like where we live the local forecast is usually wrong, we're on the edge of coastal weather in the channel and in-land weather from Berkshire/Oxfordshire and south-east/south-west weather. Unless the whole area is under rain or sunshine you can't actually be sure what you'll get...

Anyhow, today's blip is a vegetable that the slugs & snails haven't eaten and the weather hasn't frozen/fried. I don't know if there is enough growing season left to get more than a mouthful out of it...
