A walk round Thruscross with the Spark.

Went for a walk with a willing Muse around Thruscross reservoir yesterday. Very cold, but enjoyed the company.
My initial edit of the footage was done, and I liked the outcome, however I added a few scenes from the previous visits to Thruscross and extended it out by a few seconds for the second version of the edit.

Enjoy the edits 😉

Mobiles

I regularly see people using mobiles while driving on my short walk to work.

But to use it in the weather we’re currently having, is just absolute madness. But what’s worse, is a local news website, publishing photos on their twitter account, taken while driving.

I got blocked by them after pointing out, how stupid it was to be using a mobile while driving in these conditions, so they appear to be quite happy to promote illegal behaviour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All of those photos, are taken while driving.

Distracted driving is dangerous at the best of times, but in these conditions it is downright idiotic, and for a website to publish them is a bad choice, you cannot and should not normalise this behaviour.

Drafting

As I generally ride solo, I don’t get much chance to draft other riders to reap the benefits.

However, yesterday I did. A rider was going at a good pace down the cycle path, and there was little point in passing. So I stuck behind and took advantage of his hard work. And got a new PB for that section in the process.

I wasn’t that close to get the full benefit, but it was noticeable the less effort I was having to put in.
