Three minus one

Another fine day of cycling - Stafford via Shugborough, Gnosal, Norbury junction for elevenses. Then back via the usual route home. Mr Kelly sadly missed - but served us a fine coffee, squash and malt loaf (2 for 1 in Morrisons).

Fit for france

An excellent morning ride mapped out by James taking
us through Eccleshall, Maer, Ashley, Cheswardine and 
back home via 'The Bell' in Eccleshall.  Averaged around
12.8 mph. 

James looks into the future - not the near future hopefully  -
at the top of a churchyard in Maer.  Apparently Darwin
was married there.  How odd that the missing Welsh link
should turn up 150 years later. Shortly afterwards, we
tried swapping bikes for a bit, which was fine until James
tried to get onto Jeff's.  He had to ride side saddle almost
due to his Ernie Wise-esque legs.

Much needed tea and cereal bars (James always has
fancy organic ones) at a pub in Cheswardine.

Well, not quite, 4 weeks to go, getting on for optimium
 fitness - 50 miles today. Sent from my BlackBerry®

Congleton cycling action

A Cycle from Barlaston to Stoke, Congleton, Rode Heath, Alsager, Betley, Bridgemere, Eccleshaw, Yarnfield and Stone, 62 miles in total! Mr k had decided to go for a big ride today, probably do 50 miles, which would have made it Mr kelly's big ride for a while but even bigger for Jeff as his furthest to date had been 35 miles so to end up doing 62 miles is a good effort. So the med men can relax take it easy their fit strong and ready to go, not, all we've got to do is be capable to do the same distance for 10 days in a row. Even though Mr K and myself have done this before on the Le Jog that was 2 years ago and although the mind knows we can do it the body needs a little more convincing
