    I got up determined to start with some serious riding in the run up to my summer tour. I loaded up the bike (two rear panniers and a bar bag, half of what i will be carrying) and set off to Saffron Walden in Essex. I had planned to stop over at the youth hostel but changed my mind when I got there and rode home.
    I left at 11am this morning and arrived home at 7pm. Total distance just 85 miles (136km). I did stop for an hour for lunch and another 30 minutes rest in the park in Saffron walden though. The wind was the biggest 'feature ' of this ride, relentless. Nice sunny day though. My legs are killing me now though....dunno how I am going to manage 100km ever day in the summer....I dont think I will be able to ride at all tomorrow, let alone do it all again:ohmy:

    dan_bo How much does it cost to Oldham?

    you lucky lucky bar$tard. I've been sat in the car all day driving down to, and then around, london watching with envy the hundreds of cyclists bazzing about the place. And I didn't even get out over the weekend. Mockery.
