2 rides today. I decided to cycle from Church up the hill to the Dereham Road and then on to the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital. It didn’t quite go like that as Ken came out of his appointment – yes, on a Sunday – and met me half way up Longwater Lane. I rode the rest of the way home in the car with a nice cool drink.

Feeling rather guilty later in the day, I got back on my bike and headed off up the B1108 towards the double roundabouts that cross the A47 but turned downhill through Bawburgh, up the hill and turned left at the bottom of Herbie Hill. I headed back along the Bawburgh Road and through Marlingford to Barford, up Cock Street and Right at the end and headed home. Not a long ride but I had a great time.

Back on the BSO but Kenn took the ladies ‘racer’ C1980 that we found in the shed and put new inner tubes on. I actually rode it for the first 400 yards but terrified myself as it was way too small for me, possibly only 1 frame size down but I hated it with a passion. Kenn was much braver and he rode it to the City and back from Mark’s house. Happily the inner-tubes will fit my Giant, should I need them in the near future. The girls’ racer’ will be de-tubed asap and can go back in the bloomin’ shed. Scary scary thing.
Usual commute into the city on the BSO, along the Marriotts Way and parked at the Duke Street bike park. Reverse of outward journey on the way back. Bum hurt and I couldn’t get any decent cadence going with the ‘normal’ pedals that are on it.
