#Errandonnee 2016 Challenge: Rides 1 & 2

Errandonnee #1
Date: Saturday, 5 March 2016
Errand: Go to my Quiet Place to Study for my Exam
Category: Education (I propose changing "Work/Volunteering" category to "Career/Vocations")
Destination: Thompson Close, Harpenden
Distance: 4km
What I learned/observations:

Some days, the portability of the Brompton trumps* all other considerations.

Errandonnee #2
Date: Saturday, 5 March 2016
Errand:  Collect Fresh Raw Milk from Local Man With Small Herd of Jersey Cows
Category:   Non-Store
Destination:  Crabtree Lane, Harpenden
Distance: 1km
Steed: Lucy the Brompton
What I learned/observations:

1. Timing errands in between hailstorms can be tricky - but is so worth it.

2. Also, mid-way through the day is not the ideal time to realise you should have worn (or carried) waterproof trousers - see point 1.

*And so we mourn the loss of a perfectly good word, forever spoiled by one of the most horrifying personalities ever to seek public office.
