What a great few days it has been! Weather has been perfect for those early morning rides with the air smelling sweet with crops coming through. Some days, the low lying mist in the fields with the sun peering through make the English countryside a picture post-card scene.

The only real incident I had was when a Muntjack deer tried to cross the road in front of me. There I was sitting happily at 60, when this deer ran out in the road. I couldn’t stop. He did though and turned back to the hedgerow from where he came. I’m not sure who was more frightened – me or the deer!

Its funny how these days I look forward to riding into work. And of course, the ride home 🙂
