Pouring here in YewJean Orygun YewEssay at the moment; snow in the forecast for Thursday. Hmm. We'll see. Winter here has been much warmer than normal without a single trace of snow on the Valley floor, just a dusting on the hills 'round town and up in the mountains.

Still plan to get out on the bike later today.

Best,

Dan.

Down in Dorchester looking at houses.
Gales forecast tomorrow.

We semi retired last May and finalise transfer of our business at the end of January.
Both girls live and work abroad so time for a new adventure for swislon and Mrs swislon.

It looks like Dorset here we come in a couple of months and goodbye to North Yorkshire.

We will be looking for cycling buddies in near future !!

You didn't say, next month but if you had I could have mentioned my trip to Ethiopia. Feb 12 - March 13.

Fly from Edinburgh via Istanbul to Addis Ababa.
Cycle North to Lake Tana, one of the two sources of the Nile.

I hope to see hippos and visit a charity that supports local folk operating bee hives.

Not yet...too early in the season but close. I've done a number of 62mi/100km, and an 84mi/135km so far.

Managed a quick 45mi/72km today in the rain. The sound of tires hissing on wet pavement is a favorite of mine; nearly getting hit by a truck is not. Three high school kids in a pickup truck decided to drive head-on at me on my side of a residential street, running my up a fortunately placed driveway entry.

Gotta get the new/old Fixie up and running soon to accelerate my training and fitness early in this new year.

All the best,

Dan.

I got the train out to Swansea and rode South to North 2 years back, taking in the beacons and the north coast. almost as nice as Scotland. Only one trip planned so far, 4 day ride around Dumfries and Galloway area beginning of May.

Anto,
I am currently sunbathing indoors, the very heavy rain went through by noon.
I ventured out on foot and was nearly blown away, it is safer sitting indoors just now.

Just wondered whether you were aware of the LonLas cycle long distance cycle route web site below, apologies it's not a link.

Too cold to vacuum in my study. All the pedalpals are hiding inside, too. Odd, actually, as Monday it was 12C but I was already down to take my wife to lunch, so no cycling.

Dumfries and Galloway is my old stomping ground.
18 years behind the counter of St. John's Town of Dalry local shop.
Near New Galloway.
Plenty of interesting places along the back roads.

Matt, now in Aberdeenshire.

It's a great area - I've enjoyed several short tours there and will no doubt do some more.

This year I'm considering LeJOG. I've wanted to do it for many years, but first I was tied down with children and then when they grew up it was elderly parents. Working and other holiday patterns have got in the way too. I'd really like to "do it properly" and be self-sufficient but my husband is not interested (and in any case I can't keep up with him) and I'd prefer some company in the evenings. I'm currently looking at organised supported tours and wondering if I can build the necessary fitness - snow and ice has kept me off the bike for nearly two weeks and today I felt distinctly flabby!
