Nicky and I arranged to meet a couple of friends for a pub lunch at Watlington, about 21 miles away. As the forecast was sunny and not too cold we decided to cycle on our hybrids. We came across a flooded road but fortunately the traffic stopped to let us through, but we still got our feet a bit wet. We both had bangers and mash with onion gravy, and a good chat, then set off back at 2 pm to get back before dark. It was a good start to the year and sunny and dry the whole day. Total mileage 43. Feeling a bit stiff though as we did a 12 mile walk too on Sunday, and we're both in training for a half marathon in Sept.
