Longest cycle of the year! 34 miles!

That’s well pleased! I’ve not long back in from the longest cycle of the year! I did 34.59 miles! My avg speed was not the best at only 10.6 mph. Still I am more than happy! Just myself and the bike need a good wash! After cycling to, then around Rutland Water!

During the cycle, I also did some more Geocaching. I found 9 during the cycle, which takes my total finds up to 207! So should make my goal of 250!

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