We are having mild weather this year. A complete contrast to last years snow. I have been cycling with no gloves on. It was busy in central London on Thursday and difficult to find space to park the Brompton to avoid taking it into crowded shops. As I was unlocking my bike to leave I found another cyclist waiting for the space. By the time I got to Covent Garden I gave up looking for space and just pushed the bike into the shops. The Brompton got a compliment at the Apple Store from an assistant who told me that she was getting a Brompton for Christmas. The photo of the Christmas tree is the view from outside the Apple Store in Covent Garden.
I was able to wear my almost new ankle boots from Clarks. I have had them since September but I'm only enjoying wearing them now because we suddenly got a brief late summer in early October and then we got a lot of rain. Good rubber sole which gives a good grip on the pedals.
No cycling for me over the Christmas as I am worried that I may get another flat tyre.
