Until my mudguards arrive I'm commuting on the roads. Its quicker by around 5-10 minutes depending on how fit I'm feeling and the weather, but the traffic is really busy. Its an A-road all the way whereas the quiet way is a disused railway.
There has been a lot of rain in the north east of England since Sunday although its eased off a bit now. I certainly didn't fancy making my way through the slop of the railway and having to clean up before I go into work. And vice versa tonight. So roads it was and I got wet - not on the inside, I have appropriate clothing. Mudguards, please hurry up!
I'm lucky however as there is a showering facility at my workplace. Its always a great feeling to finish a ride with a hot shower and fresh clothes. The feeling is second to none.
