Sunday Freedom

I got out for a road ride yesterday (Sunday 9th) on my usual commuting bike.

Motivated enough to set-off in the morning (I do like a lie-in at the weekend...) the weather rewarded this decision with sunny / cloudy / dry 11 deg. C, pleasant riding conditions. And just to spite any late-starters, rained in the afternoon.

Sunday morning cycling has to be one of the best days to be on the road, purely for the reduced traffic quantities. It is so nice to (depending where you are) enjoy moments of traffic-free peace, where the only sounds are of high speed rubber whirring on tarmac, and the successful clonk of the next gear.

I can totally understand why cycling clubs begin their rides at 7am or 8am in the morning; the absence of other traffic must be fantastic!
