Winter's back

Today, at least, felt like winter - though the official start of that season is not until the 20-something of December.    Out on my bike it felt really cold - the summer mitts gave way to fleece gloves, the layers got added and I wore a buff round my neck.

In a last attempt to resist the change of seasons I stuck to shorts this time - it was manageable, although my legs were rash-red by the time I got home.  And despite the woollen socks my toes were pretty numb by then.

At least it was very dry and sunny.  I hope I can keep my resolve when the truly wet and dark days of early January make staying at home or going to the gym a tempting possibility.
