The ride wasn’t rubbish, it was rather pleasant. But there was no view on the way up Holme Moss this morning, so there wasn’t much to look at besides the various pieces of detritus on the edge of the road. Here are some statistics concerning the litter observed on the verge whilst grinding up the hill at 7.30am.
Gel wrappers: 4.
Fag packets: 2.
Lager cans: 3.
Red Bull cans: 6.
Soft drink cans: lost count, but there was one fully embedded in a shoddy pothole repair.
Energy gels outnumber cigarette packaging. Times have changed.

The sun was shining over the other side in Derbyshire.
