Default Today's Ride

Cracking audax today: Colours of Clumber 2 - 117km from Clowne (106 miles
total including riding there and back). The weather was just about as good
as it could be in mid October, frosty first thing in the morning and wreaths
of mist in the valleys as we left Clowne heading out to Clumber Park.
Clumber was indeed colourful and we made two traverses of the park on the
outward and return legs.

I must say that at the finish I wasn't looking forward to the 17 miles or so
return leg to home, but I chose the shorter, and hillier, route and the
miles ticked off quite easily. All in all a nice round-off to my audax
season.

Many thanks to Clive for running this event twice over two weekends so that
more riders can enjoy it.

And much the same could be said about today's Mid Sussex Hilly (except
that the mist had cleared by the time we did any descending).
Thanks to Martin Malins and his helpers for a cracking day out in
sunny Sussex.

Nice ride wasn't it. No badgers mind (alive or dead). Did see a
couple of buzzards circling as we did the bit between Balcombe and
Staplefield. And a dead deer on the side of the road on the way home.

Presumably yours was the recumbent.

Yep: and, despite taking about 3kg off it compared with last year, I
probably got less far up Cob Lane this time - partly due to having
to brake hard at the bottom to avoid virtually trackstanding DF
riders.... still I walked up at about the same speed as them
The last 20km was glorious rolling hills stuff though - ideal
recumbent territory

Like Kant, it is my wish to create my own individual
epistemology. But I also wish to find out what is for pudding.
