Re:

Another tough day exploring. Found a hill at last. At the top was a secluded woodland where the wild garlic and bluebells were fighting it out.



Further up I was struck by the shape of the hilltop.........



Only to find even further up what appeared to be a hill fort. Deserted but obviously well kept and walked.



A much gentler ride on the udder side.



Other than a couple of recently exploded cows and their offspring.

Great day for it.

Not much of a breeze today so it felt warm when out on the bike.

I went swimming with my daughter yesterday and was feeling very drained today so went for a really short ride. By the end of the ride i was feeling a bit better, but glad to be back.

Re:

Another gentle ride today. This bike has very little grip, as isdiscovered attempting an uphill twisty section today. The narrow bars don’t help either.

Cool day today so perfect for riding.

Ended up just riding a short quick loop today as legs were feeling really heavy and have a cold coming on. Lots of dog walkers out today with it being the holidays.

Nice but tiring ride.

Re:

Warm today and not much of a breeze.

Went for a gentle ride with an old friend today, havent rode together for well over 20yrs :shock: neither of us could remember exactly when we last rode tbh :)

Great ride, great day
