What a beautiful sunny bike ride I enjoyed yesterday with three lovely ladies who I met through our shared love of cycling. With the route sorted (sort of – directions have never been my strong point) we set off on our trusty wheels & headed out towards Ashridge. On our pedals we passed some stunning bluebell woods – a haze of blue as far as the eye can see, went up a couple of long slow hills to wake the legs up and then onto some fast & furious flat! All the while we were drinking in the views of the fabulous Hertfordshire countryside. Time seemed to pass far too quickly, and finally we were on the homeward stretch, with the wind behind us and the sun on our backs, heading down the lanes towards the obligatory stop at The Hub for the best cappuccino in town! What a wonderful morning, fresh air, glorious sunshine, plenty of exercise and lots of banter. So if you have a bike gathering dust at the back of the shed, now’s the time to get out there and embrace all that cycling has to offer!!
