This morning we cycled 30 kms – the distances are getting longer. We rode out through the quiet country lanes of Snitterby and Waddingham and then crossed the A15 and climbed up towards Kirton. Again, perfect riding conditions, although the horizon was a little hazy. We were up high by Lincolnshire standards and could see the Wolds in the distance. From Kirton we rode down towards Redbourne and stopped by the churchyard for a brief rest and a drink. Redbourne is a pretty little village with a stream running through it; today there was a horse grazing on the green with a gypsy caravan parked nearby.
From Redbourne we cycled back to Waddingham and returned towards home via Atterby Carr. It is fairly level terrain here so I was cruising along at a fair old pace. Suddenly two racing cyclists swept by and left me standing. Discouraging or what! But as Paul pointed out, they were half our age.
