    Coming home from my gf's place, just before 0900. The sun was shining, a crisp bite hung in the air and the only other traffic I saw was another cyclist.

    Perfect.

    Fabulous morning here. Quite foggy around 7.30am, giving way to bright blue sky and sunshine. Cold-ish (6C at 9.00am) but no wind to make it feel raw.

    Gorgeous! :rolleyes:

    Why would anybody leave a warm bed and girl to leap on a bike?

    I love the Surrey Hills, lovely riding ground. Though they can get pretty hair raising in the wet.

    One of the many lovely lanes.

    Ah yes, i know that marker, just near East Horsley before you go up that bugger of a hill called Cranbrook.

    Do you ever go out with the Kingston Wheelers? Every Sun out to the hills.

    And glad to see you are doing your revision and not being distracted by posting on CC :rolleyes:

    Managed a quick 40 mins (had to run some errands, and expanded the route somewhat). Lovely day - even banter[1] from local chavs on £100 full sussers couldn't spoil it.

    [1] Pointed out to one that his brakes could use looking at after seeing him struggling to stop at the ped crossing I was stood at. Evidently there was no need for any advice from me in this matter.

    I am on occasion out with the Wheelers, though Charlotteville is my local club.

    Yeah... revision. I've got to drag my sorry @ss off to uni I think, otherwise I will be mooching around here all day and further reducing my productivity!

    Got the morning off
    Mtb in the back of the car 8am heading out into the peaks. Only problem was I stopped for fuel a mile away from home. Car refused to start.

    Bonj, never mind "Bloody hell your camera's good"..

    What about "Bloody hell, you're off to Uni!", that makes Jacomus less than half my age... *Nashing of teeth and much jealousy*
