What's this two posts in a month! A good month for work, a bad month for being a cyclist. Two new consultancy jobs popped up out of nowhere - which was nice, but as usual can't talk about them at this stage (it's a planning thing) however the weather took a turn for the worse and it's been cold, wet and windy. Now, I know they say "there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing", but day after day of November style cold, northerly winds and rain bordering on sleet does start to wear thin.
I have been very lucky to keep up the practising of my fledgling photographic skills, managing to persuade some very talented local female riders - Jo Cardwell and Roberta Walker to 'model' for me (steady now - cycling pics only) and most recently Jules Fincham of Cycle Wild Scotland - a locally based mountain bike tutor. The first sesh' with the girls started well, but soon deteriorated as the rain moved in earlier than expected, causing misfires of my wireless flash kit, but still a good learning day. The shoot with Jules was blessed with sunshine and as we have some stunning trail right on our doorstep(s) it meant the whole day could be spent on the bikes, with no travelling required at all. Bonus.
June's just around the corner and pretty soon I'll need to make the decision whether to do some races this year - more precisely whether to 'man up' to the training required to do another 3 Three Peaks cyclo-cross race, which also means a new cx bike.....
