Magic :D Makes going off-road special when you have views like that :)

I enjoyed a good one today, making the most of the good weather before it breaks ;)

Just a little one today due to the overriding need to attend to many domestic and gardening duties that have been neglected for a few days due to going for long rides in the gorgeous weather...

Trouble is, the garden is loving the gorgeous weather too! A bonus is that I'll soon be harvesting rhubarb 😋

Today's ride :) Lots of wind and two rainstorms with sunshine in between - I got wet and dried out again twice before arriving home :D

Hope you enjoyed Castlethorpe Jim, Over on POTD Elm tree cottage looks very quaint, and no doubt eye-wateringly expensive :-D It was the war memorial behind you on that gave the game away.

A very, very windy one today :twisted: Good for strength and hill climbing training as riding into the wind is like climbing one long hill :)

I'm one of the few who enjoys a good windy ride... I find it exhilarating despite being blown around a bit due to my weight and the weight of my bike...

I've been enjoying some long and epic bike rides during the recent summery weather :)

My 50 mile ride yesterday saw me ride past this church...

It has a tenuous connection with Citroen ;)
