Ride into work for Wednesday, 23 January

Rode into Bedford for a physio appointment, and decided to take the long way back through Clayton Park as the bike lane on the Bedford Highway was thick with slush and ice. The fire trail was well ridable as the snow had melted in the rain and refrozen overnight to a relatively smooth surface. Ran into the muppets on the way through, two people carrying yappy little Yorkshire Terriers. The woman carrying her dog walked into the middle of the path and lunged over towards me and shouted "HEWWO!", confirming my theory that people with yappy little dogs are mentalists. I suspect this might have been a muppet I've encountered before, but the man she was with looked different and rather hangdog; someone with a mean streak might speculate she'd driven away the original partner and picked up someone else to pick on, but a thought like that would of course be beneath me.

Messy ride in with heavily salted roads causing ice to melt and deposit on me and my bike. Fortunately it looks like we're about to get a streak of sub -10C weather, which should keep the salt down a bit.
