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! 🙂

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!

Yes, yet another cycle! I only did 18.56 miles this afternoon. I would have loved to have done more. But it was very windy indeed! Which is why my avg speed was only 10.3 mph and my max speed only got up to 26.3 mph.

But at least it did not stop me from doing a some more Geocaching. I found another two, which takes my total up to 180 finds!

I also took some more photos. The last one is my favourite, since you can see a train going past on the ECML.
