I did my 40miler this morning, a nice ride upto Dunkeswell aerodrome with some tough climbs on the way that put my HR right up near my limit.

Nice mellow ride, too hot to push myself too fast or too far IMO.

I'm good at being a cycle bore though:)

After a late breakfast consumed sitting outside a cafe in sunny Dolgellau Friday, SWMBO and I cycled the Mawddach Trail to Barmouth and back. This trail using the route of an old rail track following the estuary is a must see. Returning as the sun is beginning to set returns dividends with bird siteings and a beer stop at the George III Hotel with elevated views over the estuary is the icing on the cake.

Tis a good time to be up in N.Wales - sounds great. I spent far too much time on the M62 today, though the last couple of days have been pleasant in the garden at my sister's . Not much cycling though . Actually none !

One of the main reasons I like the early starts is that the riding doesn't eat into the day too much; we got the train down to Plymouth at just after 10am and were on the Cornish coast path by just after noon. We didn't walk as far as we would usually - phew it was hot - but I earned the pint of Cornish Orchard cider I had at the nice waterfront pub! A really nice day out.

I warned Cornwall about your imminent arrival Mr. Bass.

I know that getting up early makes sense if you want a quiet cooler ride, I just don't like getting up early :)

Ta! 'The Cornwall' is used to it, we've been coming down for the past 16 years.

I took advantage of 'DuhIngerluhnd' playing Ballfoots last night and set out to do a Scobswell speedy London Loop. The roads and cyclepaths were beautifully quiet so I went all-out to see how quick I could do it.

Very pleased with that, Dartford to Big Bong/Westminster Bridge in 1Hr 25mins then Westminster Bridge back to Dartford via Q1 south of the Thames (about a mile longer) even quicker in 1Hr 23mins.

Home -> Big Ben -> Home in less than 3 hours pedaling time. Legs and shoulders ache a bit today but boy oh boy it was fun and worth it.
