Challenge of the month
With the recent good weather due to change in the near future today was selected for my third ride your age trip this month.
As I’m still Questing the settlements within my home county of Oxfordshire I decided to head for a village I have never been to before, Fulbrook.
Setting off in lovely clear though fresh conditions I needed arm warmers and gilet for the first ten miles or so.
Had a great day out on the bike, managed to visit six new location to add to my County Quest total, as well as riding my age again.
I’d only been home for half an hour when the wind really picked up, it clouded and the first spots of rain in a couple of weeks began to fall.

Nice ride and photos! Good the wind picked up ‘after’ you got home!
The last photo appears to be cutting corn for silage — a dairy farm near here in Indiana has many acres of corn harvested that way and used as feed.
Yes, it was luckily timed, as it wasn’t very favourable.
I was surprised how fast they were travelling across the field.
Lovely countryside, Dave. Thanks for the photos. Glad you’re getting out and about.
Thanks Bill, hope the conditions improve in your Western States very soon.
Lovely to see one of those thatched roofs again, and to confirm the rumors I’ve heard that Britain too has arches. Well done!
Thanks Scott, good to hear from you, hope you are both enjoying your travels.
Looks like a lovely ride, wonderful country for cycling!
Hi Suzanne, yes some of it is really lovely and a very enjoyable ride,
