what a great day. started with a fab 10miles largely along the canal from Edmonton, then a crafty ride across several main roads - lots of it in the sunshine - to Fyfield where I consumed beer and hog-roast till the peloton whizzed by. I couldn't keep up with the greyhounds on the trip back, but Oliver held back to keep me company.
upsides: the weather, the company, the beer & the food but mostly the Epping road free from cars.
downsides: headwind going home, having to walk through Epping and the heavy traffic through Ponders End.
I did a good 60m today & enjoyed every bit of it.
big thanks to Pete for planning/leading.
special chappeau to (starfish&coffee?) who I had trouble keeping up with even though he was on a shopping bike!
