I’ll keep it short today and let the picture speak the thousand words.

Headline One: Yesterday, inspired by our Saturday cycle in gorgeous, summery weather (and an ongoing oil crisis), I made my first journey to work by bicycle — a 20 mile roundtrip.

Headline Two: Yesterday the rain predicted all weekend finally appeared. Oh yes, and it was accompanied by hail.

Summer cycling in Scotland!

One of these days, I’ll learn to never turn my back on Scottish weather!
