Well, we all rode this week in various combinations and distances and managed to add 176 miles to the total so now over half way there!
Another quiet week. Working up to summer is always quite busy in the swim school so not much time to ride. The one ride we did do took us up to Swadlincote and Conkers, a route we have never done before but the weather was good, the pace was slow and it was a good few hours in the saddle.
Well, only a few miles this week as it's been a busy working week for both of us. We keep plodding on though and are looking forward to the summer and doing some lengthy rides.
This week has been filled with sadness as Tony lost his fight against cancer and passed away on Saturday evening at 7:05. Our thoughts go out to Sally and Eileen and the rest of the family on this sad week.
Jane had been out on her own, Dave has been out with Bob and Bob and Sally have been out too so a real team effort!
Bob and Sally got out and did a 44 miler on Thursday which took them DOWN Hopwas Hill (thank goodness), across Tamworth and over to No Man's Heath. Then over towards Rosliston where a well earned coffee was waiting. Up and at it again to Burton on Trent and down the other side of the A38 through Barton. A nice ride on a nice sunny day - half leg tans all round!
Dave managed another PB at 24 miles - well done Dave, great riding and just one more mile to do to get that Sportive distance under your belt. We cycled the shorter Rosliston route on quite a windy day.
