Don’t know why I was worried about the weather. No problems. Damn cold, though… especially the run over the moors on Woodhead Pass. I think I prefer that to Snake Pass, from a riding point of view. More open, easier overtakes (though I was lucky and there wasn’t too much traffic).

Last night’s return run down the M6 and M40 was pretty hellish, though. So much traffic, so little lane discipline. It’s like the whole country’s forgotten how to drive. What I thought should have been a four hour journey took nearly five and a half so rather than getting home at a relatively comfortable 8pm it was well past nine – nearly ten by the time I’d got out of my riding kit and finally settled down with a well-earned cup of tea.
