Sunday 6th bike ride

Today we were going out for a short bike ride (I just couldn’t be bothered this morning – too tired) but after we got to Steeple Morden, I was tricked in to going further. So instead of around 10 miles the ride ended up at 17 miles.

So here is the route:

Saw a fair few cyclists many of whom were very friendly.
Weather was dull, but I’ve got a nice tan (compared to my usual porcelain colour) this year due to all the cycling!

Wednesday 19th bike ride

On Wednesday I went out on my own, so only did the route we refer to as “the block”. This route is as around 10.25 miles and is rather flat, so quite relaxing and a good indication of how fit we are getting as we always time how long this ride takes us.

So here is the route:

Wednesday wasn’t a nice day to go for a long cycle ride because of the quantity of greenfly in the air. I spent the whole ride hating every minute and cycling as fast as I could to get home and remove the greenfly who had decided to hitch a ride… Due to this I completed the route in the shortest amount of time I’ve ever managed – 44 minutes!

Sunday 16th bike ride

Today we decided to go on a different route, one which we did last year and haven’t done since. I was told we were only going out for a short ride (which is about 9 miles for us). 25 miles later(!) we got home… So here is the route we took today.

We saw a lot of other cyclists today! But today there was one part of the bike ride where there was some rather close cars passing (one the road from Gamlingay to Potton). Ones to point out are K?51 HSC.. and V61 ??? The first who passed so close it was quite frankly dangerous.. and the second who beeped us (yes ok, one of us was near the centre line, but it wasn’t necessary) .
