It’s that time of year again, by 6pm there’s light on the horizon and after five months of dark cycling, there’s a sense of relief that the end is in sight.
Another month and I’ll be celebrating as the clocks will be going forward and there’ll be seven glorious months of light. It might not be sunny or warm but at least there’ll be light.
I’ll be throwing off the layers of HeatTech tights, top, gloves, scarf, wooly hat, socks, high vis reflective jacket, helmet and everything needed to get through a winter of cycling. It’s all about having the right clothes and I spend my time changing, cycling gear into work clothes and back again.
At least I hope I’ll be warm enough to take something off, there’s no guarantee!
