First day off and a good pedal.

Just short of 22 miles, I went over the Waseley's, over the back of the Lickey's, down towards Alvechurch along the cut via Barnt Green, then pedalled over to Weatheroak Hill to skirt along the Wast Hills which took me back to Hopwood and the usual reservoir route back to Rubery.
I was feeling pretty good despite the weather which was rainy and windy so I did another flip over the Waseley's and Lickey's. What a sucker for punishment eh? The last climb over the Lickey's disappeared in a haze of shiny torture (Thanks Carrie), but pain is just weakness leaving the body!

I'm hoping this week to give Phill a kicking!
After a quick de-gunk and ablute me and wifey took advantage of the kids absence and walked 4 and a half miles with the hounds of hell around some of the bridleways I pedalled during the Saturday puncture fest from a week ago. Wifey was suitably impressed so brownie points for me!

No-one can accuse me of not getting my excercise today, plus I had a lunch of Kiwi Fruit, Strawberries and Oranges for dinner, how good am I eh?
Another morning MTB trip tomorrow to look forward to tomorrow, and the met is looking better too!
