29-Jun-2015: That was a good 30 mile cycle!

That was a good cycle! Even found a new road, I’ve always past and never noticed it before! I only did 30 miles, I was hoping to do more. But had to get back to pick a mate up from the train station.

So far this year, I’ve only done 1,056.8 miles. By this time last year, it was 2,730.5. So I am 1,673.7 miles down! On the same point last year! Can’t see me making them number of miles up, before the end of the year! 🙁

I will now leave you with the route map, route statistics and photos.
