No question, its tough out there, I keep telling myself that the hardship now will make things easier later on... but! .... It's bloody miserable most days!
To make matters worse my winter bike is annoying me - Ok its old and battered and creaky but its developed a few new noises of late. I thought it was probably the build up of mud and salt so I decided to clean it. That just seemed to make things worse - and the noises are hard to identify; sometimes they seem to be emanating from the back wheel, or is it the bottom bracket? - wait, maybe its the front wheel, or is it the front mech? - it's impossible to pinpoint. Anyway its going to have to be taken to the doctors.

My mission/goal for February is to ride every day. It seemed like a good challenge. And here we are Feb 17th and I'm on course. Total mileage so far is 287 - I'm hoping for 400 plus which will be okay for a 28 day month at this time of year.
Yesterday was a great sunrise here. I took a snap on my iPhone...
