Soham November 2001

It was cold, but I fancied it, so as we were visiting friends in Soham I decided to cycle while Angela took the car. It was a pleasant run - straight up the A10 for eight miles to Stretham, then another eight to Soham. As it was cold and dark I decided to wimp out of the return journey, popped the wheels off and put the bike in the back of the car. Easier than I thought - only took a minute.

We were hoping to buy some flour but sadly Downfield Windmill is in a real state and it's likely to be a long time before it can be reopened. Anyone know of a way of getting grants?

Total 16.3 miles in 75 minutes, average 13 mph
