I've actually been out for a proper ride! I know that's nothing special for you lot, but I'm very much a lapsed cyclist and I can't remember the last time I went out for a decent ride. Yesterday I rode from Monmouth to Wigmore (40 miles) to see some friends, then rode 5 miles to the pub, then rode back again today. I can hardly stand up now, but I managed to do each way in just under three hours, which I'm quite pleased with. It's odd how a degree of fitness remains even after a long layoff.
