I’ve been away from the blogging lately due to a heavy work schedule. I have missed the first few rides with SIR this year, as well. I’ve been commuting a few times weekly, and plan to up that as I get my Hunqapillar set up for the Oregon Outback.
I was in Europe a few weeks back on work meetings, and managed to get to Scotland for a weekend vacation. From a flight into Glasgow, I hired a car and drove to Oban to stay at a bed and breakfast for 2 nights. I didn’t get any biking in, but did a lot of walking about. The main draw for me was the landscape and whisky distillery.
I managed to get a few bike pics in Stockholm, Sweden. It was the only place I noticed much biking. The weather was quite mild in early March – I had assumed it would be frozen and snowy, but it seems not unlike home.
I also noticed a few mail carriers using bikes.
As for London – more cars than ever it seems. I met a few friends who biked to the local pub, but I only noticed a few bikers braving the busy city streets. They seemed to be very comfortable getting close to traffic – just not as much room on the streets there. One of these days I’ll have to rent a bike and do a bit of cycling. The roads are inviting – especially the less busy rural roads of Scotland.
