After the delight of 65 miles the previous day, mostly on country roads, I fancied something different for Saturday’s ride, so I set out and simply weaved my was around town on a mixture of cycle paths and roads. It was also a little later than I’d planned, and we’d had a couple of rain showers, so I wanted to avoid geting caught out in the lanes as darkness fell.
And I loved it. It was great fun zipping around here and there in town. I was in familiar territory, but also explored a few areas I’ve hardly ever been through despite living here in Stevenage for 42 years. I’ll do more like this.
Although it has to be said I don’t get a lot of hill practice this way.
