A cycle ride round the local Fens

I had intended doing a 60 miler today, but got up a bit late and was wondering if I would manage even half that.
As it happens, the weather was how can I say this ................

BLOODY FANTASTIC

Bucket Head - Pitch Dark


So I set off anyway, with no real plan (often the best way).


And here are some piccies on route

You can't see how muddy it was, but it got a lot worse

Not exactly sure how far I went, since I don't have a tracking gadget, and didn't use a map, but something like 54 miles in total.

So, I now have to go and order a Z Packs Sleeping Bag....

Well, I mean, WHY NOT!
