Now I like a nice Cotswold stone wall as much as the next man, but once you’ve seen one, you really have seen them all…….
Cold and snowing on the way down. Tough, hilly, lonely and boring course. 3 laps of approximately 9 miles. Put it 3rd hardest ever though behind Beachy Head and Snowdonia.
Still, sub 4 and 3rd M50, so can’t complain. Jax equally happy, under 4 and a half and 5th “lady of a certain age”.
2 down, 10 to go. Bring on Charnwood.
Highlight of the day: the efficiency of Ford’s ABS which prevented me from obliterating a kamikaze pheasant out for a casual Sunday stroll out in the middle of nowhere.
