I was close to cancelling today's ride. It was cold and windy again, but today there was also some snow/sleet coming down. After 15 minutes of pondering I finally just got changed and went out with the bike.
I headed west along the Thames and picked up the super cycle lane (CS8) but only as far as Pimlico. I spent the next 20 minutes or so zipping around the back streets before heading back towards Whitehall.
I was blown around in all directions and on a few occasions was caught by a nasty side wind that I thought might just lift me off the ground and slam me into parked cars.
