.. well it was an option, as my employer had generously allowed us to go home early, but the weather was far too nice to be hurrying about and I don't know what the off side rule is, so there would not have been much point.
Anyway, it is "jam-busting June" here in Bristol, so I am breaking up my commute with a five mile cycle over to my car-share buddy before we embark on the next 12 miles in her car. The weather has been perfect and I just wonder why it has taken me so long this year to dust of my bike.
In the morning, I take the short route which is nice, but I did not like to stop for the photo opportunities in case we were both late for work. However, here are some of the delights which I experienced on the return journey on the cycle route on the Bath to Bristol Railway Path.
I am sure that the folks playing with the steam train at Bitton railway made more of a carbon footprint than I saved, but they were having fun and it was nice to see an old steam train working.
Looking towards Kelston Top which is at the end of the long distance walk "The Cotswold Way".
The River Avon with the old Fry's factory in the distance.
.... and guess what - I am so slow blogging that the match has finished and they won!!!
