Sunday Ride 25 December 2011

Well, at one time there was little traffic on Sunday mornings. There were no shops open, no out of town shopping centres with their attendant traffic lights to break up a ride and no M25. The world was a quieter place and the cyclist had the choice of what road to use.

I go for a ride, weather permitting, every Christmas Day because it is the only day of the year that resembles how Sunday’s used to be. I left Croydon at 08:30 on the fixed wheel riding 72” and went straight down the A23 to Handcross and back; bringing back memories of past rides and time trials. Minimal traffic and mild weather made it a very pleasant ride down memory lane this year. 50 miles in 2h 55mins: too short really.
