It is not global warming that is causing our rides to be longer. It is the prices in the Lucky Duck. We were all lined up for a shortish ride to Shere, breakfast in the Lucky Duck, and home when the fact that the Lucky Duck is a bit pricy. (A pot of Tea and beans on toast cost more than £5). While it is true we are a bunch of tight fisted cyclists there is a practical reason mostly we only carry £5 each rather than a wad of cash. So we suddenly find ourselves heading for Henfold Lakes (2 cups of Tea and beans on Toast £4.20) via Ockley and about 40 miles to get there and about 20 miles to get home.
Well it is encouraging us to get the miles in which we will all need if we are going to make a good show of the London to Canterbury in July. We will have to step up the miles even more. It was a good ride, 63 miles but did not get home before 12.
