the Hybrid in Motion ride

spent the day walking over the Malvern Hills yesterday so legs were a little sore, but rain had been forecast for the vening, so got out there, as usual my "recovery" ride turned into a slightly longer jaunt. i'm loving the versatility of the cx tyres on the swft, fast enough for me on the road but i can also tackle rougher stuff i'd never be able to on a pure road bike. as proved when i was able to tackle a new piece of towpath, closed in 1939 it's now 3/4 restored and stretches from the Grand union to the river Severn, once finished it's going to be a sweet way to avoid the quite busy road that runs along side it. i should have taken a snack better than the crunchie i had as i started to bonk a bit, but only within a mile or so from home so not too bad.
ride 22
29 miles
total 308
