Riding the winter solstice

I celebrated the summer solstice this year by cycling out to a decommissioned church and spending the night in its hallowed emptiness. This was followed by a ride home as the sun’s orb rose above the north eastern horizon at 04.44am.

A few days ago, on the 21st, as the northern hemisphere reached the nadir of its tilt away from the sun, I set out on a symmetrical ride to observe the winter solstice, and found that Santa had solved his transport problem in the event of a snowless Christmas…

…he misses nothing in his forward planning…very impressive. Present deliveries are now assured…

I wish you all a very happy Christmas, and many happy miles in 2019….and thanks for your company.
