Back in the saddle #2

Sure enough, even though the ride home was longer, it didnt feel like I struggled as much as the morning.

Longer because I opted for a quieter route, going in the opposite direction of one of my morning routes. After a seat post raise by ~5mm, I escape work for another week. Soon I come to a nice riverside ramble after 1km of cruising down the slopes of Harlow .

The Parndon Mill lock

Onwards along the roads through the  arable farms of Gilston & High Wych I’m struck by how things look different travelling in the opposite direction. This row of pylons with their lines snaking their way through this green and pleasant land remind me that although it’s quiet, civilisation is not far away.

Blot on the landscape

Another 6km takes me over the M11 to  invigorate my tiring legs and affirm this £5 money saving journey.

See what I'm missing?!

3km later, I’m off road on the flat track of the Flitch Way.
