Riding there along some of the county's quieter roads, it made me realise just how little of the county I've actually seen. There so much more to be gained and seen that just going to the odd bike meet each week.
The ride back was just as good, if not better than the one there. There was much less traffic on the roads and I was able to stretch the bikes legs a bit, really enjoying the bike and the road. For me, it was also a really good example of the difference between commuting and riding and it made me realise that I really need to do more of the latter.
