Jun 10 - 50.67km, 63m (https://www.strava.com/activities/7284679727) at last the rain has stopped 😊
Jun 18 - 105.32km, 360m (https://www.strava.com/activities/7326308310) so the rain stopping didn't last long with another week off the bike. Looking far better now though. This ride is utterly fantastic, one of my favourites out here.
Jun 19 - 50.67km, 79m (https://www.strava.com/activities/7332075213) very steady spin
Ju 21 - 50.83km, 121m (https://www.strava.com/activities/7342159068) back to riding my bike daily now, this is much more like it. Incredibly hot though which calls for very early starts.
