I didn't cycle today, for a few reasons, none of which look particularly good right now.

But I did have to nip into town this lunchtime. I was after some advice on a sewing machine adventure I'm going on at the moment.

It's a lovely day. And I keep Rusty (yes, that's a bike, a battered old Raleigh) at work for just these occasions. He might live outside all the time, but it's still a very smooth ride. Friction shift are perfect for neglecting. They don't rely on being set up exactly, you just move the lever until the gear shifts and goes silent again. I love riding in civvies. Pretending that I live close enough to everything I want that I don't need to change clothes after a ride.

I'm hoping that this move South will let me do it more. Anything under about 10 miles, that's an easy ride. I'm really looking forward to it.
