First big test today of whether (sorry!) I'm going to be a 'fair weather commuting cyclist' or not ... was indeed a bit damp on Monday morning when I started the new regime, but this morning it was belting down.
I have to admit, nearly polished off the bus pass when I looked out of the window ... but, temptation was resisted and I cycled to work, getting pretty soaked in the process :-(
I definitely need to get to a decent cycle-shop over the weekend and buy a good light-weight rain-proof jacket ... only 'water-tight' jackets I have at the moment are of the mountaineering type; not really suitable for cycling!
Face another conundrum later, as being Friday there is the distinct possibility that one or two drinks (of the mildly alcoholic variety) may be consumed before returning home for the evening ... now, this was never a problem when on the bus :-((
