After yesterday’s warmup (more video to come soon), today I did a 75 miler. It felt good – the weather was excellent, and nature has got a real shimmy on. Bluebells are out, there’s the scent of wild garlic on the breeze and everything is busy.
I rode out through Stonall, out to Canwell via Footherley, then on to Hints, Hopwas, Elford and Harlaston. From there, I progressed to Clifton Campville, No Mans Heath, Netherseal and Lullington. Returning via Coton in the Elms and Catton, it was a lovely ride in warm, bright sunshine with little wind.
I am, again, in love with the countryside and all it contains. Well, almost all of it.
After a long, long winter, please lets have a great summer. We’ve earned it.
