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.
This evening we cycled from the Sherwood road to Suffolk and back. On the way out near York there was swarms of little black flies, the black spots on my shirts are some of them. Most have been the warm day, mid afternoon it was 28.
There was 14 in the group this evening, we were taking a short rest at the Suffolk road in this photo.
Today on the return ride most of the group stayed together.
