Had to go back to see the full display today. Beautiful. Basically spent my time messing about in the woods.

This is much steeper than it looks

Then down through what looked like a nice smooth field. The cows had made sure it wasn't.

@pat. stem lowered bars changed. Much improved.

Flowers are really beautiful, THM. I've been off the bike for the last 3 days with a sore right knee, but it's feeling better and will try it tomorrow...

I managed to drag myself out of bed early enough for a pre-work, pre-breakfast ride this morning.

Top of the first drag, around 15 minutes of uphill. Into the countryside 8)

Before a long gravelly descent, followed by another ( road ) climb, onto the South Downs Way.

Having recently worked out how to do selfies, I did one of those, too :roll:

Before riding past the pig farm, and down from the Downs, to the Downs Link, a gravelly flat path, alongside a river, and into work!

I don't know what the hell is going on with my leg, there! :shock: Looks like I've been in the bath too long. :lol: :lol:

Then time for a cup of tea, and some toast! :P

Great start to the day! 8)

Mike

Isnt it great that due to very little rain in mar/apr all the mud has dried out. ( this UK btw) In some parts on my local routes, its so dry the ground is gravelly so slidey instead of slippery. :O

If it continues like this i expect some serious water shortage problems.

Today I decide to do the same ride (as friday) again on my most capable bike. I was rad and knarly. And wider. Amazing the difference 30 years makes. Both have their charms. Smiled more on the old BRat. Thought far less about ahead/line on the Salsa.

Today-Thursday-Nice out, about 70 F. and breezy. After being off the bike for the last 9 days letting my knee heal up, I headed out today. Feels great to be back out on the bike again, the woods were beautiful...
