WOW! That’s me just turned 41! My plan, had be to do a cycle of 82 miles on my birthday! But since it’s was only around 14C to 16C, don’t really have the best weather extra long cycle. Still very pleased with 50.63 miles. You can check out the route at www.strava.com/activities/4128752319

WOW! That’s me another year older! That’s me just turned 41, feels like only yesterday I was 40! Where do the years go?!??! So for my birthday, went a mini cycle! Did my 5th, half century cycle of the year!
So pleased with myself! At long last, I’ve done my first Century ride of 2020! But it was easy one, the 100km one! Wish it had been the 100 mile one! But still super pleased with 62.52 miles!

It was really great seeing Matt again! It’s always nice seeing friends that are into the same “fun things”, that you are! Sure you get, what I mean!
Here is Matt and myself waiting for his train back to London!
Here are some photos, of the fun stuff we got up to! 🙂
Remember you only live once! So have fun, when you can!!
Happy days! Matt is here, been looking forward to this for so long! We had been hoping to meet up in May…. But all that had to change, when the world went very, very mad! So it’s great getting to do more normal things again and meet up with friends!
So here are some photos of myself, waiting at Grantham railway station for him 🙂
P.S. Can you also guess, what else I was wearing?!?!? Comment below!!!
