Nicky and I went for a 15 mile round trip up and over Ashridge today in sun, rain and hail showers. There's no sign of bluebells yet.
Nicky and I both commuted our 8 miles to work this week on the sunny warm Tuesday, but in different directions, Nicky to Hemel and me to Aylesbury. I normally cycle 2 or 3 times a week, but it was the first time for Nicky.

Little Horwood

Nicky and I did a 41 mile ride today to the north of here. The weather was fine and sunny, with temperatures not as high as last Sunday, but it felt much more pleasant as there was hardly any wind. We stopped for our picnic at Little Horwood, then had tea and cake at a cafe in Winslow.

Training Ride

It's 6 weeks till we set off for Lands End, so we did a 33 mile ride today in Bucks in warm but windy weather.
Nicky is also planning next year's summer ride which will retrace a 500 mile walk her father did when he was 18 in 1933 from Dieppe to the Massif Central.

Sponsorship Site

Nicky has created the following site for our Lands End ride next month

We haven't been doing any cycling lately as we've spent a week skiing in the Dolomites. We were lucky to have sunny weather and deep snow.
