Nice simple ride – Avebury and round to Marlborough for coffee, just Richard and me.

Gave us time for a chat about future rides and the such like.

Roads were dry and relatively clear of traffic which made for a good fast ride. Leaving Marlborough, we dropped down via Hackpen Hill and through Broad Hinton and Broad Town all the way back to Cricklade.

The two routes I suggested we couldn’t do as time got the better of me. They are a whole morning’s ride and “the boss” had me under strict instructions to get back home by 10am to help out in the garden and to go and buy my youngest son some new football boots.

Still, it was a sunny morning so well worth a sprint anyway!
