another stratford ride today, this time from home with a little cyclocross on the way. we;; CX spectating in the local woods. Much to high intensity for me but the riders are very skilled keeping upright on the technical course in pitcheroak woods.
a lot of road on this route but as unsuitable as the 29 plus bike might look it's actually very comfortable and although it's never going to achieve as high an average speed as a road bike it does speed along quite briskly.
a bit of greenway, avoiding a dubious looking crash between a cyclist and a dog walker (they said they were ok) and a trip though the ford at Coughton were the highlights and i got home with a satisfying ache in my legs
