Buckinghamshire is enveloped by the smell of charred lamb.

Out for a good long cycle ride today, and not too bad a pace either. 71km in 3hrs 15 mins. Okay, not blindingly fast, but for me it was a good pace. Road were very quiet with a combination of people being away for the bank holiday weekend, and people taking advantage of a warm day after a miserable spell of weather to get the braai fired up.

Out past Chequers and on to Marsh and Stone, before turning south to Risborough and Wycombe. Then up through Hughenden to the Hampden Crossroads and back via Missenden to home. Very warm, and drank almost the full Camelbak.
