Other than that I didn't see a soul and it was very pleasant.
No physical after effects from my 40 miler yesterday which is nice.

A few bits to catch up on, I fitted some Crud RoadRacer mudguards on to my Giant on Saturday. The shop fitted Giant ones were making a horrible noise and I couldn't shut the little blighters up.
The Roadracers were very easy to fit. The only issue was me cutting the "reusable" cable tie to free up the rubber bands to fit the stays to the fork, You need the cable tie to fix the mudguard to the brakes! Oops, that's what happens when you don't read the very helpful sign attached to the cable tie saying "do not cut, reusable cable tie". Lucky I have a shed load of cable ties in my tool box.
They look good, now I have to see if they ride ok.
Our Saturday bimble down the bridleway went very well. We collected quite a bit of hedgrow food which went into our meals on Saturday and Sunday.
Wifey and the kids got some horseradish, lovely with the Beef on Sunday. Some wild rasberries, which went with Icecream for dessert. Sorrell and watercress which makes a banging soup and finally some Elderflower, which wifey made into a very refreshing cordial which I did my level best to finish off quite selfishly yesterday after my 40 miler.
