Ride to work…photos from a training ride

Photos from this mornings training ride…Wivenhoe to Ipswich!

I’m about to embark on a sponsored cycle ride ( https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/thehairybiker) covering 400 odd miles, visiting location s connected to 40 Eastern Angles shows and 30 of our venues. Read more on my blog here. But for now here are some pics from this mornings training ride!

(sign of the times…Elvis and all the other tribute acts have left the building. Even the For Sale sign has gone! There will…however…always be white vans!)

(A meadow in the morning!)

(Too early in the morning for even the hangman to be supping his first pick me up in The Old Courthouse)

(The ride gets biblical as I am stopped to partake in a census. I am, however,  not with child so I am let pass)

image

(which way to turn?)

image

(I look suitably lost but, pleasingly, not too flustered!)

image

(the sky begins to look ominous)

image

(Manningtree .. the half way point!)

(Chapel Cottage)

(Belstead – woe betide anyone who enters here with a wind turbine)

( and here we are.. Ipswich in all its glory!)
