Thanks Patrick

I've lived here all my life but still come across country lanes that I've never explored before.

The day started brightly. Here's a picture of the church at Warmingham, completed in 1899.

It seems no ride can escape a few canal crossings and views:

Arrived home just as it started raining.

A late afternoon/early evening 37.2 miler today.

The beautiful village of Sherrington in the Wylye Valley is totally off the beaten track. You have to know it's there to get to it.

My approach into Sherrington:

Note to all. Your ride pics are great, keep 'em coming! Beginning to think that I might just take it easy on the bike someday and take some pics on the way!
There's always time for one more.

Lovely Cheshire countryside this morning...

Five minutes later, I was absolutely soaked - and 15 miles from home.

Still, at least it proved the waterproofing of the battery and motor on my bike. :)

I'm at home dealing with a Plumber at the moment.

Desperate to get out later for a ride but the storm clouds are gathering here too.

Lovely countryside downer.

Photographs from today's outing.

If you magnify this photograph you can count 10 red kites circling the field all calling to each other:

Great to see so many Red Kites scooter, but I'm seeing eleven (unless one is an imposter).

You're absolutely correct Guy.

I could say that I waiting to see if anyone bothered to count but the truth is I've always been bad with numbers.

I hate to think how many noughts I may have added to taxpayers' bills over 41 years.
