I decided as it was such a nice afternoon I would go out for a few easy country miles in the sunshine by way of preparation for tomorrows race. I went out on the Specialized bike as I felt it deserved a trip out in the sunshine after all the winter riding it did..
I selected an easy, undulating circuit that would finish with me riding home with a tail wind. I took it really easy and was on very quiet country roads mostly, very pleasurable after the last few hectic training rides. It was a ride of just on 22 miles and I was quite surprised that despite my intention of taking it easy, which I felt I did, I still achieved an average of very close to 16mph so my fitness must be coming on OK after all !!
I even had time to stop to take some pictures that I have included here for your delight and delectation..
