You’ll all know that of late, I’ve not been too well and that work has taken up a huge amount of my time – well, my health is now thankfully improving, work is easing off and the sun came out (although the wind was still a bit keen), so yesterday I had a great 58 mile ride via old haunts into South Derbyshire.
It was a ride in decent weather, warm when out of the wind; it was great cycling and although my choice of cake-stop was sadly closed (Rosliston Forestry Centre’s Hub Cafe is on winter hours until April 1st and shuts at 4pm – boo!) the day closed with a terrific sunset.
I went to Lichfield, Whittington, Whitemore Haye, Croxall, Walton, Rosliston, Coton in the Elms, Lullington, Clifton Campville, Haunton, Rickercote, Wigginton, Hopwas, Hints, Weeford, Shenstone and home.
The spring is beautiful this year, and the wildflowers profuse. If you can, get out there while the season is still on her throne.
