February 29th – Joy of joys it was raining again.
I returned to Brownhills via Catshill Junction in a darkening hour. The weather was getting to me, as was the lack of colour in my world.
I try to be, and stay a positive person at heart. I like to try to make this journal as positive about the places I got and things I see as possible. But of late, I seem to have done nothing but whinge about the weather.
But be in no doubt: Out there, right now, it’s pretty awful to be on two wheels.
These are some of the hardest weeks I’ve ever ridden, if I’m honest.
