Birthday rides: final tally….
Eight days of cycling, including the ride out and back from Yarnfield in Staffordshire, saw me cover over 560 miles (900 kms). Not a huge tally (some 70 miles per day) but on four of those days I was riding with saddlebag and camping equipment.
The weather had treated us kindly, Staffordshire and surrounding counties were rich in quiet lanes and byways, and the company of fellow wheelers made the week very special, particularly at the end of the day, over dinner, where the conversation ranged over every aspect of cycling………and much more besides. Even the theory of evolution was tackled!
But to round up, here are some random images of the week.
