Last ride of the year

Finally, cabin fever alleviated!

Fittingly. The last ride of the year was on the last day of the year. After taking Reggie out for a walk on the beach we had lunch and as the sun was still out so I togged up and set off.

I wore my new Aldi boots for the first time. I bought them in the summer but have stuck with my old Oxtar boots. They were alright. For only £29.95 I wasn't expecting too much. They have a waterproof lining.   The only minor problem was that on the left boot the gear change pad is a little uncomfortable. Maybe with thicker socks it will be better.

I had a ride along the coast to Folkestone and thought that maybe the Battle of Britain Memorial might be open and failing that, the Cliff Top Cafe would be for a warming break. Sadly both were closed so no picture with a Spitfire and no tea break!

On the Cliff road overlooking the sea, the wind got up with some very strong gusts. I decided to go home as the sun went down as it had turned cold.

On the M20 the wind was even stronger and holding Pepe in a straight line was getting harder. In the end I came off at Cheriton and came the back roads route home.

All in all it was shortish ride!

  1. Woohoo, glad you got out for a ride.

    We managed to get out today, temperature right at freezing when we left and it warmed up a little in the sun.

    Happy New Year.
