Training : : Bone Cold

Bone ColdGreat Sunday ride south through the Chilterns Hills. Lots of blue sky and a smattering of snow in the fields. Temperatures barely making it over 0 degrees. The cold managed to get right through me today with punishing windchill.


Training : : Christmas Eve ride

Christmas Eve ride A long windy ride from London to Shakespeare’s birth place to see the family for Christmas.  The route passed through the Chilterns where I was lucky enough to see two Red Kites circling above lunch.   Brilliantly sunny day riding through the English countryside and I also happened upon a small village called Christmas Common!

Brutal headwind all the way and feet numb for the last 4 hours of the ride.  Rethink needed on shoes and socks for the colder days!
