A lot to catch up on!

Been off the radar for a few days.  Despite a family bereavement, still managed to get out for a few rides; it was the time to document them that went by the board. All back to normal now, well nearly, so this is a chance to catch up.  Got back to Weston after 10 days in Leamington and it was a relief to get back out onto very familiar ( and flat) ground again.  First time out, was just the usual circuit to Burnham on Sea with a later 6 miler to the dentist.

Uphill Nature Reserve

Did the usual trip out to Burnham and back through Brean and Uphill.  Did not risk trying the new cycle path from Brean onwards as it is not officially open yet.  Stopped in the nature reserve to get this shot of the old Uphill Church and beacon in the distance.  Note the blue sky!

Uphill Quarry

Leaving the reserve, the old limestone quarry dominates the landscape.  Very good for rock climbing and local clubs use it quite a lot.

After the long ride of the day, had to go to the dentists.  Might as well use the bike and get a few miles on it.  Luckily, it was just a check up and was given the all clear. Phew!

Shots from Leamington and around

A few pictures from the several rides in the Leamington area.  The first was taken on the road to Ashorne. Graham patiently waiting on the sidelines!

The flowers are a bit past their sell by date but a nice enough view. Taken in St Nicholas' Park Warwick on our ride back from Wellesbourne.

A couple of days later went out on my own on a similar ride around Wellesbourne and took this shot in Fulbrook Lane on the way into Sherbourne near Warwick.  One of Warwickshire's 'leafy lanes'.

A bit further on, another 'leafy lane', this time the cycle track that leads from the busy Stratford Road at Warwick over the M40 motorway.

A couple of days later, did a circuit of Leamington, Warwick and Kenilworth.  Back in Leamington, stopped on the Victoria Bridge in the centre of Leamington and this is the River Leam, looking upstream towards the Mill Bridge and the weir.

Having said all that, pleased to report that the minimum of at least 100 miles a week has been kept up.
