Cycling when it was 31C… Not a good idea!

That was a great cycle! We did just over 50 miles. But it did turn out, for me anyway. It was not a good idea cycling when it, was around 31C! My body on way back was not liking it, at all! Never had to drink so much in my life! Was, so, pleased when I was back home and having a COLD shower!

Please let me out or I will miss my train!

Please let me out or I will miss my train! Well no need to worry about missing the train. Since it’s only 2:25pm on a Sunday afternoon. This railway station, only gets two trains a day and none on a Sunday. So next train is due at 6:15am on Monday morning… Just hope he comes back with the keys before then…

My second 40+ mile cycle of 2019!

Well done me! I’ve just done my second 40+ mile cycle of 2019. This time, I did 45.55 miles. Would have been nice to do 50 miles, but it was starting to get dark and I only had my back lights with me!

Of course, during this cycle, I did even more Geocaching. I’ve now found 330 in total! 🙂
