October Cycling

Up to 14984.7, 998.5, 213.1 = 138.5 + 3.5 miles off-meter + 90.3 on the usual cycling holiday = 232.3 (YTD 1939 miles), again, better than I'd been doing most of the summer, with the excuse of a pub crawl around the Stour valley helping. More windy than wet, this month, and continuing mild.

Clearly a busy throughfare

For once, I went through the weird country between Dedham and Stoke-by-Nayland, rather than going around up to Hadleigh, and reminded myself of why I rarely take that route -- crossing the B1068, the road becomes almost disused, and is a long grind of a mile or so on uphill on a decaying surface.
