It's a bit hard to take a photo when it is dark, but I had a go the other day using the "fireworks" feature on my camera. It keeps the shutter open for 2 seconds, which for this photo was about 1.5 seconds too long. Wow, it looks nice and bright out there at 6.30am.
If memory serves me correctly, it looked more like this (except even darker and gloomier).
And colder. Without benefit of cloud cover, the overnight minimums have plunged to a wicked 15 degrees Celsius. Which means I have to put a jacket on before setting out, which means I am sweating badly after about 5 minutes in the saddle.
You just can't win. No one has yet invented climate control for the bicycle.
