With the clocks going forward that allows me to bring out the
Summer Bike. Even when the weather when I got up was less than
promising but since I 've been waiting to get back on the summer bike
for some time, counting
the days, nothing was going to stop me. I've not got around to
fitting the GPS on this bike yet and with the Helmet Camera already
mounted on the handle bars and a “traditional” bike
computer it is hard to see how I will. So today I just hit the start
button and put it in my pocket to get a track of where we went. I'm
glad I did.
On arriving at the meeting point there was no one there but after
a few minutes a single rider joined me and suggested we try and ride
Western spring ride route in reverse, but not all of it!
With just two riders who are reasonably evenly matched this made
for a really great ride. None of that hanging around waiting at the
top of hills, well not much, so we ate up the miles and were really
glad to find the Cafe
in Wisborough Green again. On leaving Wisborough Green we found
ourselves on the route of the South Western Ride again and had hopes
of find the hill only to find that we were taken back to Wisbourough
Green again so we decided to take the other road that went north and
find our own way home. The route turned out to be really good even if
it did have a sting in the tail in the form of Pitch Hill followed by
My “traditional” bike computer claimed 82 miles and
the GPS 78. Having seen how the GPS has not really kept enough points
for an accurate track I'll take the 82 miles.. 16.4mph average.
I've uploaded the route to http://mapmyride.com.
It was really good and I would recommend it.
