Hello blog lovers.
Rest days, don't you just love rest days! It's also absolutely neccesary to have rest days to to make sure all your hard work that you have been doing has time to filter through to your bones! Get right in there and make you stronger, well that's how I am seeing it, and the principle is kind of right! things do need to heal and to grow stronger.
But the evening is such a lovely evening, no good just sitting in doors, lets get out on our bikes and do a lovely social 15 miles. That's what we did, me and the Old Boy. With a stop at the Grey Hound for some light refreshment before making our way home it made for the perfect evening social, nice and easy!
For all those that live in my area, to make a nice social ride of about 15 mile is difficult to keeping it nice and flat, especially if you want to include a favourite watering hole!. I decided that Downe Village would be a great turn around point. Cycling from our house, up to Downe and then along Jail Lane to Biggin Hill. At least from Biggin Hill it's all just a lovely coast down to Keston, with maybe just a couple of smaller hills to slow me down!
We got to Keston just as the sun popped behind the trees making the clouds a lovely orangy pink colour. Perfect. I love being out when the sun goes down, or indeed, when it comes up, but I have not seen the sun rise for ages! All in all a lovely social, easy paced (with a hill) ride!
Geeky stats up until we got to the Greyhound, and then we we left I forgot to re start my watch! But the Old Boy had his Garmin and it said 15.01 miles.
