This seems to be turning into my lucky week, transport wise.
no rain (but sub-zero temperatures) for this national strike day - perhaps a more treasured institution in my adopted country even than bank holidays.
As is often the case in such circumstances, it was eerily quiet and orderly out there, with no more traffic than usual. I enjoyed a smooth ride in with only my fingers and toes complaining of the cold.
Total journey time = 60 minutes
