⚠️ This is an old post

It's possibly been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the years. That probably means, at best, there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any advice is probably out of date and irrelevant. Or it is really old, it was the wafflings of a teenager with too much time on his hands working out what blogging is… If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

You've been warned! Onwards…

A comment that is often made about the British is our love of talking about the weather. This is because, unlike so many other places around the world, our weather is so changeable. It goes from hot to not so hot, sunny to rainy in the blink of an eye. So far, May has been very consistent with it's weather, and that is pleasing.

Making the most of the warm morning I extended my route into work this morning, jumping from an 8km ride to a 13.5km ride. This route now takes me further out of Oxford, allowing me more time to cycle along the river.

The previous route took me through Temple Cowley and I joined the river at the Iffley Lock, now I cross it at Sandford Lock, follow a short cycle path before rejoining the river before the ring road. The slight drawback is that there is more cycling around the ring road than I would really like. Hopefully I'll be able to adjust that tomorrow though!
