Vlog: Summer, winter… I’ve got no idea!

I’ve got no idea, if it’s summer or winter here in the UK! It’s been so warm the last week or so!

Trawsgoed, near Aberystwyth, reached 20.3 °C making it the UK’s warmest February day on record.

So, I’ve got to make the most of it and get them cycling miles in!

P.S. I got summer and winter mixed up in the vlog!

Legs out again (I could get use to this)

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!
