Incredible Sunday Spring spin

Dover Church, as viewed through my bike wheel. What a ride. What a day.

An amazingly wonderful Spring spin – spectacular.

I rode 68 miles last Saturday, 9 April. It was cold and damp and I was out of shape and I struggled every pedal stroke. The today’s ride (Sunday, 17 April) was different in every way. It was a lot shorter, only 30 miles. But that wasn’t a big deal. The weather was stunning, I felt great, the scenery was beautiful, it was fast and wonderful and every moment was a joy. That’s why I ride long distance. I just love rides like that. I love it even more when I feel that way on 68 mile rides. Which I will, very soon.
