Oh my goodness, what can I say about today’s ride.
The first bit was hilly and then flattened out when we hit the main road. We cycled through Lenwade (Gt Whitchingham – Where Bernard Matthews’ factory is), Taverham and into Drayton, where my Church is. We turned off onto the Marriotts Way there and headed into the city, just in time to change for my interview.
2nd interview at 1am which went on until 3pm and then back home to the van. We stayed on the Marriotts for a little longer on the way back, taking us further into Taverham. It took 1/3 of a mile of the entire journey. Much needed that bit of help as we were cold and tired.
The whole ride was 35.73 miles, there and back. Possibly not making a habit of visiting the city more than twice a week by bike.
We have gone through another 100 miles now, less than 100 to hit our 1000 mile target. We are really pleased 🙂
Today, I am writing this in Dereham. Only 3.58 miles from the site. Obviously, we have yet to ride back again, but I am taking my chance to use the interweb as it arises today. Blissful riding through bright sunlight and a beautiful day. Phesants leaping out ahead of us from the bushes, cows mooing in fields and devine cottages along the quiet roads. Perfect. Way better than yesterday. Maybe the same again tomorrow, maybe a day off. We shall see.
Miles for these days: 39.31
Miles to date: 909.55

Feelings: Monday, we were shattered. Tuesday a lot better (So far)
