33.11 mi in 04:01:39 hours at 8.22 mi/h on Surly Cross Check. [Cycling] Pollards Hill via Beckenham Place Park to Petts Wood -- William Willett's home, gravestone, secret woodland sundial permanently set to British Summer Time, pub lunch at The Daylight Inn -- and home via South Norwood Country Park and Nature Reserve.
10.03 mi in 01:00:43 hours at 9.91 mi/h on Surly Cross Check. [Cycling] Evening commute home. Felt much stronger than this morning but stats say I was slower?! Recurrence of old saddle 'pinching' problem - presumably due to posture/position as scooting around more - hard to say which is the cause and which is the effect. Meanwhile, I *love* my new softshell - beautifully made, thoughtfully designed, fantastic-feeling fabric, well cut. And only £50. Eat your heart out, Rapha!! end odo 508.0
