It’s such a perfect day … for a ride to Dearnford Lake for lunch. The cycling kit faux-pas day!


I’d arranged a longer ride out with Nic today and we decided to go to Deanford Lake for lunch as the weather was so good. I drove over to Hinstock as I needed to pick up Sarah’s bike, which Sandie had been borrowing for her visit from Australia.

With it being so sunny I opted for the lightest colour kit I have – the Free Motion jersey from Gran Canaria. Uknown to me, Nic had exactly the same idea and we ended up looking like an old married couple, riding with matching kits on – doh!


A beautiful ride to Dearnford with wall to wall sunshine and virtually no wind, Perfect! Once there I had to have my ‘tart of the day’ as it’s always so nice.


On the way back we tried a different route than normal, heading left at Calverhall and going into Market Drayton via Longslow. All worked out as planned so we continued the theme and took a different route back via Stoke on Tern and Wistanswick.


Another fab ride out in totally perfect weather. Loved it!
