I am on earlies Monday & Tuesday this week, when the alarm went off this morning at stupid o'clock I glanced out of the window saw the rain and said stuff that I'm driving today. As I lay in bed I thought to myself I will just have a look at what its really like I really should bike I thought to myself. Off I trundled downstairs but before I opened the back door I could hear the rain pounding down on the conservatory roof and I thought NO bollox to that I'm off back to my bed for half an hour or so, I reset my alarm and got back in my pit.
As I lay there I had a vision of the M62 , the spray, the waggons and the rest of the traffic rushing towards Manchester and I dragged myself back out of bed, got my bike gear on before I could argue with myself , threw the bike in the car drove to my normal halfway point and cycled in.
All in all a good commute today 23 miles on the bike but got a bit wet, however as I keep telling myself you only get wet once and skin is waterproof anyway.
So why did I wimp out you ask ?????
Well this is SUMMERTIME for gods sake its JULY........
BELOW IS WHY I WIMPED OUT TODAY
