I took the day off today to go for a ride with our eldest son, who is home from his job in Vietnam. We set off soon after 9.00 before it got hot, with him trying out his reconditioned Ricci. He and the bike performed well averaging around 16 mph (compared to my usual 12-14 mph dawdle). We stopped for coffee and cake at Chinnor Garden Centre, then headed on to Wallingford arriving at around 11.30. Nicky met us at the Boat House pub where we had fish n chips washed down with some decent beer. By then the temp was about 30C, so we went for a swim in the Thames and sunbathed for a bit before Nicky drove us home. An excellent 30 mile ride and day out.
