Cold early-on, but it warmed-up, later, with some sun. Okay for bikes but very few folk out on ’em. Swan ‘filmed’ taking-off across Elton Reservoir.
Electrical work sorted in living room. Good local electrician – ‘phone no. if needed.
Apparently world-wide (global) debt is now $247,000,000,000,000.00c. Who is it borrowed from?
I got applauded up Bury Road on the bike, it was the annual Fun-Run and a few roads were partially closed, they must have thought I was riding for Help The Aged or summat.
Rain seems to have held-off for the run.
Rainy this morning but five or six miles biked around local lanes.
Fine but very cool early-on and a quick canal/bike-route ride to spot The Flying Scotsman at Bury South. We were just in time, the engine was approaching the level-crossing at Baron Street as we arrived.
It looks great, as ever. A few minutes later Witherslack Hall steamed up.
This too looking good. Two great steam locomotives that’ll be working a local heritage line (E.L.R.) for a few days.
Bike maintenance later.
Might be Flying Scotsman tomorrow. So early start.
From Radcliffe Nature Trail (near asda’s) to Ringley Road (Wood Street ‘Station’) to Giants Seat and Clifton Marina. Around the lake then to Prestolee Road and along M/C Canal to Meccano Bridge then along canal back to Radcliffe. About 13 miles in all. Very warm.
