There's nothing very special about riding an easy 21 miles on a Sunday afternoon, but it was pleasant enough for the first outing of the year. I went down the Jubilee river, then on to Datchet, and back through Eton and Eton Wick. On the way I located and mapped a few more of the local war memorials, but the real point was just to get out for a bit of a stretch. There were a few other cyclists around, and we shared a little bit of sunshine and some quiet roads.
I hope this won't rank as my longest ride of the year for very long, but just at the moment I'm proud to declare that I'm 20% ahead of schedule on my annual mileage plan. It won't last.
