the long ride home
Roz used BMW power to get home, whilst I used my bike.
Today was the first time I’ve needed extra layers, and on a dewy morning I was glad I had them.
I tried a different tack from Goring to Clapham, then on through Findon heading out towards Steyning.
This shot was taken before 10:00am, and by then my feet were sopping from all the wet grass.
Even with my new tyres I was very wary of the damp grass, and slippery chalk.
At times I was cycling at little more than walking pace, as discretion is the better part of valour.
On one steep incline I got off all together and struggled to keep upright as I walked down the bridle path.
Later in the day I took a few other twists and turns to familiarise myself with a cycle route around Southwater and Horsham.
All in all I had a morning in the saddle.
