I don't usually do rides in the winter (other than visiting people)... but went for an easy and slightly hilly ten miler today just to see how the lungs held up after my recent brush with pneumonia. All good
Rode & videoed a lot of that route in November - but in daylight. Also headed out toward Leaton.2nd night in a row for an evening ride, this time with @Rickshaw Phil and Doug. A similar cold temperature to last night, so an extra fleece went on as I was feeling the cold on that ride and felt much better tonight.
We followed cycle paths up to Heathgates and then went through Sundorne and along the old canal path to Uffington. It was then onto roads to Upton Magna and Berwick Wharf.
After pulling onto the busier rat run to Atcham, we were overtake by a Land Rover doing what must have been double the 40mph speed limit. We crossed the old Atcham bridge and then took the hillier route up Chilton Lane and on towards King Street, Betton Abbots and parted ways with 15.38 miles on the clock.
