Odd day today, at least with regards to meteorology. Set off for a cycle ride under clear blue skies, but within half an hour we had both wind and low cloud, with the cloud base being at 180m and me living at 220m. Lifted a bit later in the day, but for the whole day we had an odd very thin haze across the county which gave a wan light to the sun.

For the cycle ride today I headed over to Terrick and then out onto the Vale of Aylesbury. I think that there must have been an Audax going on today, more cycles out on the roads than I’ve seen in a long time. Counted at least a hundred, some in small groups, some in pairs. Did 69.4km, and feet like blocks of ice by the end.
