Where to tomorrow?
The weather is supposed to be fine and clear tomorrow, and I need to get out and ride. The winter seems interminable and it's grey and damp here now. I've been busy indoors these past few days, and my conscience is clear – chores complete, jobs done – even the ironing! So I can ride out tomorrow nice and happy.
But where to?
My fitness has suffered over the past few months – like everybody's I suppose, so there won't be any centuries coming from me for a few weeks yet! I fancy a 50.
30 miles round here is hard work, but doable even now with my level of fitness, and it only takes a little over two hours, so I want to go further. Is my confidence up to it? Funny, but I lose confidence as I lose fitness, it happens every year. No doubt other people are the same.
So where do I go? I obviously want a circular route, and I still have this strange obsession of cycling on all the roads in Cornwall, so it must be to find a new road I haven't been on yet. Nearby, that's impossible, I've done them all, so it must be further away. To this aim, I've produced this on BikeRouteToaster.
It's not quite circular(!) but it will get me onto new roads. For instance, I've not cycled Bodmin/Pensilva before or even to the south of Bodmin Lanhyrock/Waterlake/West Taphouse, so it should be a good exploratory ride of just a tad over 50 miles.
I should come back tired and smiley.
Wish me luck, and regards to all,
