Visiting the Lions

A nice road ride from Bradford-on-Avon with Ian today. We looped out via Warminster and down to the Longleat estate, raced cars down a fantastic descent to the house, then climbed out again for a tea stop before picking up the route back through Warminster and home via Trowbridge after a slightly lumpy 42.5 miles. Not bad going for what Ian reckoned was a flat 30-miler.

The Thule ProRide bike carrier worked well, although it’s a bit nerve-wracking the first time you load a bike worth about the same as the car onto the roof, especially when you can’t recall how high the bridge is that you need to drive under, and can look up through the sunroof roof to see it wobbling away.

    It was good. Bit achy now though.

    There’s me feeling good about a 3 mile run this morning and a 3 mile walk around Sywell reservoir after lunch and you trump me with a 42 mile ride.
