A really hard ride

That hurt, my legs still hurt.
Only five people out today and we went out via Walton and Weybridge then up and over Newlands Corner. After the decent the group split in two with three heading for an early finish and two of us went on. Through Shere, Peaslake and then up to the top of Pitch hill all as fast as our legs would take us. Dropping down Pitch hill, which despite being “closed” was remarkably open. We then headed for Henfold Lakes via Forest Green, Ockley and Newdigate again all as fast as our legs would take us.
Then over breakfast my cycling buddy mentioned how disappointed he was with the average speed we had achieved so far which meant that the return journey was to be ridden flat out.
Ended up doing 64 miles at 16.4mph.
