Yesterday's blog has been updated with map and photographs.A morning free in Leamington so best use the time with a ride round. A big circuit today taking in Barford, Hatton, Beausale, Leek Wootton and on returning to Leamington, calling in for a cup of tea with a riding friend Graham who is temporarily unable to get out on a bike at the moment. It feels like taking the mickey a bit, calling round on the bike, but he will enjoy the visit and he makes a good cup of tea. (Note to Mick - no cake this time, disaster!). I was hoping to find some clumps of bluebells to photograph but there was nothing worth taking on this trip.
A bit of a snapshot of the M40 near Norton Lindsey looking north towards Birmingham. Traffic moving well today. Not always the case at this point during rush hour.
It was all going swimmingly as well. Just going through the outskirts of Beausale when the front tyre deflated. "Oh golly gosh" I said to myself. Didn't take too long to change the tube. The tyres are Gatorskins which are reinforced but that didn't stop something sticking a hole in the tube. Couldn't find what it was.
Not a bad ride, a bit overcast but it didn't rain and it was reasonably warm. Covered just over 24 miles today.
