The wind was blowing from the North-North-East and I made the decision to go out towards Grafham Water again, into the 10mph headwind. I paused in Great Staughton to take a photograph of the espalier trees and Triathletes competing in the Nice Tri event.
The road into Perry was being resurfaced so I turned left and headed to Higham Ferrers in Northamptonshire. From there I began my ride back, with the tailwind, going through Rushden, Sharnbrook, Oakley, Bromham and Kempston.
Total distance covered 70 solo miles, 18.1mph average, average cadence 80rpm and average heart rate 133bpm.
