It's very unusual for me to get out and ride at the weekend, unless I'm due to meet up with some friends, but this was great fun. It was just me, the bike and the road. The way it should be. The bike felt good and I felt really comfortable out there.
On the way home I stopped very briefly at Badbury Rings, a local landmark. Being honest, it would have made more sense going there when not wearing a full race suit as I could see a little, but not much from the car park and certainly wasn't dressed to go walk about. It did however, give me an excuse to take some photos.
The bug level was really high and something very large exploded all over my visor, reducing my visibility, just enough to be annoying just after I left the car park. All I can say is, I'm really glad I wear a full face visor.
