    I have been off the bike for about a month for various reasons but today I got out and did a 42K ride, what a good feeling it was to get the pedals turning again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Temporarily back in England, and as I haven't cycled for months, bought an old Specialised hack bike to keep me busy for the next 3-4 weeks whilst I'm here.
    Just had a quick spin so far, and it felt great, but I don't like riding in 'civvy clothes', so I'll have to buy some more kit. Shame! :smile:
    Hope to do 2-3 hours a day.
    Anyone know any good rides in the Exeter area?

    Yep, thanks, Tete! Just finishing 'Rough Ride' then I'll get stuck into it!
