Last weeks cycle rides

Welcome to my new blog at some point after each ride, I will update here with where we went & how long it took. I will try to include pretty pictures of maps showing where we went, but these may be in the future as I learn how to do them :-)


So in catch up, last week Tom & I cycle on Saturday, we cycled somewhere But I can't remember where, these write ups will have to happen more frequently.


Becoming a non smoker again
