Errandonnee update – the errands so far.

Its that time of year again when a new word features large in our vocabulary, Errandonnee.

This will be my second year taking part, and its great.  Its really added a fun and creative slant to cycling, added to the fact that I am part of a global group of cyclists who are all doing the same thing regardless of age, experience, fitness or time zone!

Day one, the 4th of March my Birthday and a social call to my in laws house to say hi and thank you for the card.

I had to squeeze my bike in the hallway , I didn’t bring my lock and I wasn’t going to leave it outside without it!

Day 2 was a trip to the store to get some lightbulbs, why is it we never seem to have any until we really need them?

Got a bit wet! (sorry the picture sizes are different!)

Day three and a commute to work.  I am very fortunate that my ride is through some amazing scenery, my work is in a great location.

errand day 3

I’m loving the lighter mornings.

Day four and some personal business, had to go to the post office and send off my daughters passport which needed renewing.

Day five and we are gonna go for you carried what!  Unless I can come up with something more creative, (I’ll try for it!) my wife’s C.V. for a new job she is applying for, hand delivered.

Oh, I got even wetter!  The second picture is the path through the nearby park which is now a river.  Curious to note that my speed is showing as zero!

Day six is a triple whammy, Non-store errand, store and Arts and Entertainment.  Our model of car was recalled as they found that the heater has a tendency to catch fire!  So I put my bike in the boot and drove down to the dealers whereby they told me it would be about three and a half hours!  Took the time to ride to a sports clothing store and bought a new waterproof jacket for cycling, its a vibrant green with black sleeves.  Had plenty of time left so cycled to the Cathedral Quarter which is on my way home.  It is a brilliant mixture of very old and some modern architecture which fits well together, Lincoln Cathedral being the centre piece.

 

That’s it for now, a few more errands to get in, watch this space.

    Great errands so far, Martin! And you reminded me that I need to buy light bulbs as well…I used up my last replacement a few days ago and completely forgot about restocking my supply.
