The overnight fog had lifted by first light, though that wasn’t very early as it turned out to be a heavy cloud day all day, currently around just eight hours of daylight.

Not sure if this will be my last posting of the year, if so best wishes to all for the coming season.

Managed to get out for a decent amount of time and distance, very overcast with a steady Westerly breeze.

Corrugated steel wall of this bike path tunnel under the busy A420 main road.

New village supermarket being built in Southmoor.

Directly opposite is this converted chappel, built in 1841.

Newly renovated entrance porch and upper window of Cumnor Church.

Security and hide my business behind type of wall.

Very enjoyable ride despite the dull weather and my school boy error of leaving my bidon in the kitchen.

Distance – 30 miles.

Journey – Solo.

Bike – Tifosi Classico.

    Still riding some here, which for late December is somewhat suprising — good you could get out and go clouds or not.
    Nice photos, especially the bike path tunnel. Lots of masonry too, which has become an interest for me.
    The guy in the brick laying vid said he was told when building a shopping center in Pennsylvania, the developers only wanted it to last around 35 years!

    All the Best in 2019 — and lots more cycling!

    Love the old chapel. Not so much the new supermarket that tends to close down smaller businesses ;’-(. But that, as they say, is progress. Looks like you had a delightful ride — and I am hoping to get one today, the last day of the year. If I find something to post, I will ;’-)

    Oh — what is a bidon?

      Nancy, hope you managed to get out look forward to your posting.
      Happy New Year to you and yours.

      Bidon is French for water bottle, also in common usage in Europe’

    Those are some interesting walls and an interesting juxtaposition of the supermarket with the chapel. I like the gravestones along the little hill. I wonder if people are still where we think they are, or if they’ve ‘slid’ a bit.
