As much as I enjoy cycling in London, there’s a lot to be said about riding in the English countryside. This image was from a ride I went on with my dad not too long ago, along the lines of a ride to Brighton but more east so as to get some more hills in there. At points it was a little intense to be doing brakeless, just because on the really steep stuff there were cars around overtaking and cutting corners, but it was great. When I get a couple of days off and a bit of halfway decent weather I’m getting back out there.
Also, I’ve been reading a bit of this book by Mike Carter which is pretty sweet, called One Man and his Bike. It’s a kind of journal following his 5,000 mile cycle around the coast of Britain and all the crap he got up to doing it. I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit, maybe you should check it out. pew pew pew
