Magnificent Monday: A Ride in the Lanes

Posted on the 18 April 2011 by Exceedpossibility @exceedpossible
I had a magnificent Monday of my own today, it was sunny, warm and I went for a great ride with my Dad down in to Surrey and its little country lanes. We rode from home heading southwards in to the rural parts of Surrey, finishing on about 40 miles and 2 1/2 hours riding with some rather tiring climbs! I'm currently recovering from a virus I picked up in Iceland so it was nice to really test my fitness and start getting back in to shape again. There's nothing better than a long ride in fresh air, testing the fitness and getting some speed up on the flats; keeping up with Dad's always a struggle though!

My sister completed the London Marathon yesterday in a really good time and there'll be some pictures up tomorrow covering the whole event, taken with my brand new camera!
