I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
When I started cycling around 9:00 there was a mist / fog in the air, by 10:00 it had lifted but no sun.
I cycled to marker 150 in Hazel Grove. I then cycled back to Milton.
I turned at marker 172 in Milton so it was 22 km each way. It was cloudy until about 5:00 PM and then rained. We were visiting family in Hampshire and when we got home my rain gauge only showed 3 mm so we didn't get the shower that was in Hampshire. Temp was in mid twenties.
