So many bridleways around here!

Since they are so many great bridleways around here, about time I started cycling on them! Since I’ve just about covered most of easy local roads. By going onto bridleways it, open ups every more of local countryside!

Hunter inline skinsuit Team Britain 2018

Not got, so wet in a long time!

WOW! I got super wet during that cycle! It was sunny one second, then the next had thunder and lightning. It was that wet, the roads turned into rivers! But at least it give me a good reason, to try my new Samsung Galaxy S20 5G mobile phones camera, that I got last week! So far, well pleased with it!

Yes, I was still smiling even in the rain! Since I was out doing something that I love, plus it was warm rain which always helps! 🙂

Good cycle, back before the rain started!

That was another great cycle, did 19.97 miles and better still, made it back, just before the weather changed! I don’t really want to get my new Lycra skinsuit all wet! Sure lot’s of you, would pay good money to see that! LOL!

Another great cycle with Nick! This time 50 miles!

That was yet another great cycle with Nick, this time we did 50.37 miles (or 51.28 miles), if you go by his Strava. Nick uses it on his phone, so it also records while he walks around! Where has, I use a Garmin GPS on my bike.

Still can’t believe that we did 90.89 over two days! Making it the most miles, I’ve done in two days, in a long time! It also makes it the most miles, Nick’s ever done in two days!

We’re both ready planning out next lot of cycles together, but they will have to wail till next year… Hoping to aim for 60+ miles in a single cycle! Who knows maybe even 100+ miles!! We will just have to wait and see, what happens!!

42 mile cycle with Nick!

That was a great cycle with Nick! We ended up doing 42.71 miles, which was great, since our goal had only been 30 miles! It’s even better, since it’s the second longest cycle, that he’s ever done! Well done Nick!

New route via Market Overton

Funny that you can more just 4 miles west and you end up cycling in totally, different places! I now cycle in Rutland and Leicestershire, a lot more. Since Rutland, is not even half a mile down the road, then Leicestershire is just a, wee bit after that!

Check out the fun, but short route, I took over at www.strava.com/activities/1751856605.
