2011 has been quite a year. It started with snow and ice, went very warm and dry in April and then deteriorated from May right through the summer and autumn with rain and cold weather virtually non stop. Winter began later than last year despite warnings of several feet of snow by the end of October and has alternated up to date between short cold spells and severe gales and rainy spells. The night riding has been a feature this year with the new Magic Shine lights on the bike and the Aye Up helmet lights making things decidedly easier, though I still manage a few offs in the dark! The tinted riding glasses certainly don't help the night time riding so maybe I'll invest in a pair of clear lens ones next year. The overall mileage on the Trek stands at 9764 miles so I'm still on target to hit the 10000 mile mark before the end of February, weather permitting
Happy New Year from Scotland!!
