After the late night yesterday we didn’t really get going particularly early today. When we did finally get ourselves moving, we really moved. Taking our bikes up to Burnham Beeches we cycled amongst the leaves and kicked fallen leaves. I always knew that it was decidedly hillier than anything that I have been used to, but even so, I completely failed to get the changing of the gears right. Free-wheeling down one side of a valley, I allowed momentum to take it further that I ought to have done and grounded to a panting, wheezing halt.

Still a lovely day though, and oh, how I do like the leaf canopy in a good wood. 🙂
