September 6th – I was quite pleased to see the train in when I got to Four Oaks station this morning. The wind was strong, southerly and driving warm but sharp rain against me all the way. Coping with bad weather is an important part of cycle commuting – waterproof clothes, hat and shoes, lights and hi-viz. Drivers seem to be more impatient and less tolerant in bad weather, so heightened senses are also required. Thankfully, I had an hour on the train to eat, relax and dry out before facing the elements again.
