Did I enjoy it? You betcha. So my plan is to gradually increase the time and mileage I cycle each day. Especially if this weather is going to last. But slow and easy does it.My general plan is to cycle for fun and exercise, but to also finally bite the bullet and go on a diet...'Positive thoughts, positive thoughts...'

I am also following the excellent Cambridge Folk Festival and wishing I was there for it all. Maybe next year; I had gone to several CFF's during the eighties and nineties and I have good memories of them apart from one where I over imbibed on the ale and whiskey. I apparently had a good time at that one! No.1 son went to the 1993 festival at the grand old age of five months, which amuses him no end.
I am off to cook lunch but I will give my impressions of the CFF as I listen to it all.
