Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th October

2 for the price of one today.

Saturday, we headed into the City late as we were off to socialise -shock horror!! We got parked in daylight but had to cycle home in the dark. Its amazing how fast you can cycle when fear is driving 🙂 It was a great night, clear and moonlit. We cycled past a line of poplar trees with the moon behind and the mist rising at their roots. Very beautiful and a bit spooky.

By the time we got home we were waist deep in the mist and it was getting a tad chilly. We flew home in 30 minutes so very pleased.

Goal: 1000.
Miles today: 15
Miles to date: 579.53
Miles to go: 420.47
Max speed: 28.7
Ave speed: 14.1
Feelings: Good ride.

 

Sunday was a lovely day so we cycled to Wroxham and did some geocaching. The route was stunning. I had forgotten how nice that Horstead and Coltishall are, cycling past the river and the pubs. I had also forgotten about those 2 hills. I am sure that they have got bigger since I was a kid.

We parked up in Wroxham and found a nice cup of tea before getting a little bit of caching done. We left later than we meant to and managed just to squeak home before dark fell. We both felt brilliant and we know that we will be paying for that tomorrow!.

Goal: 1000.
Miles today: 14.85
Miles to date: 594.38
Miles to go: 405.62
Max speed: 29.8
Ave speed: 12
Feelings: Good ride, nice and leisurly.

About RosieRosie

RosieRosie is a woman of a 'certain age' - whatever the hell that is supposed to mean, known. I feel about 26. I have no idea what I look like as some older woman keeps getting in the way when I look in the mirror. Married, to someone who is a bit indifferent towards me. I have a proper wanderlust and have finally moved - using the housing exchange system from - where I started in Inverness, down to Cornwall. It's taken since September 2011, when I left Inverness until March 2016 to get to Cornwall. That's not too shoddy with a swap here and a swap there, saving up again for each move. I am going to move again though. I can't handle the hills. My knees are 10 years too old for around here. Not ruling out Cornwall in the future but, for now, my riding is suffering. I love my bikes, I love my dogs and I love guitars. They all keep my busy.
