Two Factors Preventing Cycling

Sunday December 6, 2009

Two factors, this weekend, prevented the bikes getting an airing:

  1. The Weather – Saturday morning was pretty rough but it did improve through the day but then the heavens opened again in the evening and the rains fell.  First thing Sunday morning was similar, but again things cleared up nicely.
  2. Dickensian Christmas – Another one of Rochester’s annual festivals.  This one brings loads (!) of visitors to the town so everywhere was packed.  No cycling in the high street this weekend.

I did venture out today though, Sunday, to see what was going on in town; to sample the ‘Dickensian’ atmosphere.

It was packed!

High Street was shoulder to shoulder with locals and tourists all trying to see the procession and to sample the foods for sale.  The Castle Gardens had been invaded by a fair and people roamed the town dressed in antique clothing and as Dickens characters.
