Red telephone box at EdmondthorpeI need to thank, Cooper, yes Cooper my dog for getting me back into Geocaching.

He went looking for water, so I followed him, to see, what water he had found and in the process found a geocache. Which lead to me installing the app on my phone, then finding another two geocaches during the walk!

So once, back from walk him. I of course, had to go out cycling. Which in turn, lead me on to find another 16 of them.

Looking at the Geocaching website. Turns out, it’s the first ones, I’ve found once 2016! Going by today, think I’ve got the bug again!

Oh and I even found a new red telephone box, while out cycling! Oh OK, not new, but you get what, I mean!

That’s me now done my third cycle of 2019! Do think, I need to come up with a better title! Will get boring, when it reads, 100 cycle of 2019! LOL!

I did 21.55 miles, making is the longest cycle of the year so far! Also the cycle with the bigger elevation gain, which was 254 metres. But my average speed was way down to 10.8 mph.

Oh and also, when I was out cycling. I got to see something that does not happy very often and that was a closed A1. Which was due to lorry overturned, south of Colsterworth.
