to keep the shadow from Burdswood the sun must have been low in the east? Unless you were speaking figuratively.
The sun went away later in the morning so he would have lost the shadow if he'd ridden longer.
Also got beeped by an army truck on Aberdare rd, hoping it wasn't tRicky
I'm not qualified to drive any of those vehicles.
The driver was dick, beeped and then cut close behind me to turn left when all he needed to do was wait a few milliseconds and I would have been clear.
Definitely wasn't tRicky!
At least your driver waited (albeit impatiently). The one I encountered this morning decided the best course of action was to cut across in front of me.
