Managed to get away for a couple of hours leaving around 9:30 after heavy early morning rain.
Heading to Stanford in the Vale, a large village some 14-15 miles away.
Not generating too much power today.
Today’s isolated road, this Park Lane near Stanford, recently re-surfaced this mean pouring molten tar on the road and rolling granite chippings in. Traffic is then expected to disperse to the edges the chippings that didn’t stick, makes for interesting cycling on corners. From here on in it started to rain luckily it was warm.
Not sure if this was a former church/chapel, doesn’t matter it looks pretty good as a private dwelling.
The bigger of the two village greens in Stanford.
Stanford House very grand though I thought somewhat sombre perhaps it was just the weather.
From here it was a pretty wet ride home, not really conducive to photography from the saddle.
When out on the bike and its too hot, too cold, too wet or too windy its worth reflecting that
A bad day on the bike is always, always better than a good day at the office.
