    I know you are a couple of hundred miles away, but it gives me hope that I was just being nesh. ^_^

    I have that problem too. After commuting all year the big ring and the smallest sprocket are completely worn out and all my other gears are as good as new.

    Took a cut through the park when I got close to home and it was still early twilight, birds were singing.

    Snowing for much of the journey home yesterday although it wasn't sticking to the roads.
    Hard frost at home this morning and frosty cars even on the edge of the city. Not a single road had been treated, even though ice and frozen puddles could be seen up to the edge of the city; with some of the puddles from yesterday's snow becoming big slushies.

    Much to my surprise I was contacted yesterday by the firm whose driver gave me a punishment pass on Monday, to ask for more information.

    -5 on the thermometer this morning when I set out. Little lad was not complaining though as he cycled to Kindergarten with me.

    Great to see some Sun at last though after two months of record breaking minimal sunshine hours.

    -4 this morning, still decided as it is only ten minutes, and it didn't look like there was ice on the roads, I would cycle. By the time I got to work my fingers were about to fall off, I need better gloves.

    I had a balmy 0° this morning, but there was snow on the ground. I was going to only cycle to the closest station at only a mile away because of it but the roads weren't that bad considering so carried on to my usual station further along the line.
    At Bromley, no sign of snow and the roads were dry so a decent ride in. Bit of nice SCR with a chap who really didn't like being overtaken by a Brompton ^_^

    The sun is glorious, just wish I was out riding bikes instead of fixing them (still, not that bad as it is bikes anyway :smile:).

    Nice run in this morning, a little damp and cold, and the road was a bit greasy. Minor incident (my fault) where I was filtering up the inside of a line of cars waiting to turn right at a junction (filter lane) when the lights changed. The car in front of me was passing the line on yellow, and I assumed that they would continue through the junction. They didn't, and stopped hard, leaving them stopped completely after the line. I had to slam on, but given that I was pretty close, and can't stop as quickly, I slid into the back of the car at about 2mph, slightly embarrassing as it's right outside my workplace but nevermind.
