I fitted in a lunch time ride which saw me notch up 30 quite brisk miles today. Guilty at having been quite lax last week, primarily because of work, I have been suffering from a bit of a cyclist’s block in the last few weeks. I think it’s general disenchantment at the lingering winter, but now we have light evenings I like to think it’s sorted out.
The weather was kind today, the chilliness of the weekend having abated somewhat to give a fresh but bright day. Not much of a wind either which was nice. I did a rough approximation of one of my stock routes, which takes me past RAF Honington where I used to go swimming at Primary School! There are quite a few exposed bits on this ride, because we have quite a few fens here in East Anglia, which are in effect open, flat areas often with large areas of water. It’s a little but like Holland or Belgium really, windy but lacking hills.
Stopping for a quick drink break, I saw not one but two hares; they can be seen quite often in March, and the boxing thing really happens, although not in an organised fashion.
All in all a nice, two-hour spin and an opportunity for me to try out the panorama feature on the new Fuji:
