A Good Friday
Although we were warned about bad weather and snow this weekend. It didn’t happen today so I cycled down to the Dome via the Thames Barrier. It was sunny, very fairly windy at first and at one point I had to get off the bike to avoid the wind throwing me off. It took me 45 minutes to get the North Greenwich tube station including stops to take photos.
I took my fast route on the way back and for the first time I cycled all the way up Westcombe Hill! I was really pleased with myself and my legs. I realised that the worst part is the beginning of the hill and I was doing this before and then getting off at a mini roundabout to walk the rest of the way. The wind had dropped so I wasn’t fighting the elements. Time on the way back 35 minutes.
