Wow! Today in London it has been windy to say the least!! I type this entry a few hours ago, sitting in a cafe off High Street Kensington, with a pot of tea, recovering from cycling straight into a relentless headwind.
Unusually for me I had one of my larger front bags with me sitting on the front carrier block and I had two very different experiences.
The first was a slog, cycling into a headwind and not going that fast. An onlooker might have likened me to Robert Falcon Scott battling the elements in the South Pole! This was quite ironic as I cycled past his statue in Waterloo Place! The second was with the wind behind me, it was it I had a Brompton Electric with my front bag acting as a sail! Ironically moments later near Admiralty Arch I passed the statue of Captain James Cook! Of course moments later I was back to Robert Falcon Scott again! I battled the wind for a while before retiring for said pot of tea!
Until next time, stay safe out there people!
