Runny nose and sore throat, now proper snot and rasping cough, stayed off bike again! but I have loaded up the bike ready for my little trip to France 🙂
Not sure if getting up at 5 am, cycling across London to Hyde Park, then on to home was a good idea, when I have a crappy cold 😢
But I did agree with a friend that I would do a route check for ‘The Wrong Way Round’ bike ride, I also didn’t particularly find the length of the A4 very enjoyable 😢
But at least I had some family time yesterday.
So today was 102 main road miles …
I will link the route tomorrow…
No cycling today, still got a cold 😢
Spent the day in London, plan is to cycle back home tomorrow 😄
Worked from home today, felt really worn out and now have that “I have a cold” feeling 🙁
I was thinking about doing some indoor cycling, but in the end just didn’t bother! I think I could do with the rest!
I worked from home today, I decided to go for an early lunch bike ride as it was sunny and the forecast was for an overcast afternoon, the weather forecast was wrong!
After work I gave the Genesis Croix de Fer a quick check over and too it for a spin to ensure everything was in working order 🙂
So today was a two bike ride day 🙂
Lunch Ride here…
Evening Ride here…
Met up with Russ for a little cycle ride today 🙂 His route was only 80 miles so I thought it would be nice to cycle over to meet him (Cycling back would have made it to long a day, so wifey picked me up)
We arranged to meet in Bourton on the Water between 8:30 and 9 am, I thought I could get away with cycling a majority of the journey down the Fosse Way as it was early on a Sunday morning, I worked quite well, although there were one or two very speedy cars, there was plenty of overtake space 🙂 the only down side was the rather irritating head breeze (Can hardly call it a wind, but it was a pain). I ended up arriving in Bourton (40 miles done) a little later than I intended (8:50 ish)
I met up with Russ and we set off on his route, we stopped at Broadway Tower (Yes only 10 miles into the ride, but I was thirsty and Hungry!) for a spot of Coffee and a Bacon Sandwich – Russ just had a tea with no food. Feeling refueled we set off along Buckle Street to Bidford on Avon, then swung South Westerly to Tewkesbury, where we stopped for a spot of lunch 🙂
After Lunch we set off back to Bourton on the Water, the Climb out of Winchcombe with 107 mile legs was a wee bit slow, but there was no way I was going to put any undue effort in 🙂 (sort of the theme for the day for me, I can’t say I really but any effort in anywhere)
We descended back into Bourton on the Water, I met up with Wifey and had a tea cake and coffee, Russ needed to get back home so headed straight off.
Todays Route here…
Felt quite good after 120 miles, I could have continued home, but it would have been a very long day, it was much nicer to drive home with wifey and the dogs with the roof down on the car 🙂
The only down side was the vacuuming dog hair ot of the car when we got back home!
