As I had to be in early this morning to do a tour for some sixth form students from Manchester, and the forecast looked good, I decided to cycle to Jodrell today. It was very warm, even at quarter past eight when I left the house. I'd gone less than a kilometre down the road when a school boy running to the bus stop decided to throw a bottle of water at me! I was rather bemused by this, why would you want to throw water at a passing cyclist?! Still, it was a good ride, despite that.
