Christmas with the Brompton
I was away for Christmas but of course I packed the Brompton into the boot of the car with the presents and took it with me. The snow was gone by Christmas Day and I cycled back to Greenwich Park passing the runners and dog walkers. I cycled to the Royal Observatory which was free of tourists due to the holiday and I got a grand if cloudy view.
On Boxing Day the sun was out and I cycled to Ladywell Park. I saw more runners on the paths. I used to go for a run on Christmas Day, but I can’t run everyday unlike with cycling and I don’t need special clothing to do it either. In truth I am a fair weather runner.
I was given a copy of David Byrne’s book Bicycle Diaries for Christmas and I have just started reading. I am keen to know about his travels on his folding bike.
