cycling in Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire and beyond…..

Not the club ride

With the hour change and a beautiful sunny morning I was more interested in putting my feet up and watching the world not go by – as very little passes our house except the weather.  However after some nagging I was persuaded to get out on my bike.  I decided to take the camera and idle my way around to Bishop’s Castle and back by the scenic route along the Vale of Montgomery.  Somewhere along the way – well Churchstoke to be honest I – forgot to take the right turn – but so what, the road was smooth, what passes for flat around here and pretty much traffic free.  And the views? Worth getting out of bed for, though the climb out of Bishop’s Castle was a bit longer than I expected.  All the more reason to stop have a snack and take a few pictures.
