4th September: 50.04 miles - A relaxed ride to visit a tiny hamlet in the middle of nowhere, or at least it was until I turned around and realised I'd had a tailwind for the last 25 miles and now had to ride straight back in to it! - https://www.strava.com/activities/5904349100 - 2 points
12th September: 32.83 miles - A lazy morning meant I didn't have time to do the full route I'd planned for today, so settled for an undulating but not hilly 50k in the Chilterns instead - https://www.strava.com/activities/5948322577 - 1 point
