I have nearly finished a present, only I have managed to run out of the wool I was using. Now this wool was given to me as a present last Christmas so I knew this might be a bit of an ask. A bit of googling and I found out that it was sold exclusively at Wilkinsons. So a route was plotted between a couple of the nearest stores and I headed off. First to Bury, no wool at all and I knew at this point it was going to be unlikely as this was a big store. Down to Middleton. On the way I had a near miss when I was spinning a long in a bike lane and the next thing I know a car is driving across in front of me, I think I skidded as I stopped, but I was pleased to have stopped! Then I ended up on something that definetly wasn't a road, but hey my road bike seemed to cope fine with the off-road action. Choosing a line was important and I still had to lift my front wheel up over the odd step. No luck at Middleton either so I headed home. Will have to come up with another solution, but was nice to do an easyish ride - my legs were sore when I woke up this morning.
