I usually have a ride to the coast once a week, a round trip of seventy five miles. The weather prediction for Wednesday (my usual day for going) was, heavy rain, so I went on Tuesday. It was a bit windy I thought but not that bad. The evening news said it was blowing 60-70mph wind, well I've been in stronger winds than that. Wednesday, was cloudy so I went again, no rain, just a bit colder. I was reminded of a common saying we have in the North " Weather prediction, for the South, gale force winds do not travel unless essential, for the North, you will need a thicker coat".

I've been mainly using my Dutch push bike this week and it's been hard work with these winds. Being more of a load carrier than a leisure bike, it's a big heavy slow beast to pedal even on flat roads. We' recently changed gyms to a one nearer to home, so I'm pedalling a couple of miles there, doing my routine on various machines, then more legwork on an exercise bike and a treadmill, before showering and riding my push bike back home.

I was also out doing my voluntary litter picking yesterday morning with my bag and tongs, dressed in the hi-vis orange German dustbin mans outfit I bought in Hamburg way back in 2000. The recent winds had blown all sorts of litter about some from unsecured recycling boxes, snack wrappers from school kids, and a lot from the inbred lazy tossers who just drop their empty drinks cans, soft drink bottles, and cigarette packets etc. Most stuff I clean up is from a nearby area I don't live in.

I see quite a few retired old gits like me going round their local patch or further afield litter picking, and you know after it's been windy on recycling collection days there'll be stuff to pick up.

Amen Meldrew it's no different here, perhaps one small one as our road isn't a short cut to anywhere so it has to be locals, fast food restaurant wrappers, one particular kind of beer cans and cigarette pack so it's probably the same slob Sad
Last week I called the sheriff because a pile looked to much like a bottle meth lab mess and I wasn't about to touch it, it was gone latter in the day.

I keep toying with the idea of organising a litter squad up here to deal with the messy buggers.
I don't think getting volunteers will be difficult, it's getting the kalashnikovs and ammunition that has me stumped.
