.....you've just had a ride where everything comes together.
Started off riding towards a thunderstorm thinking this is going to be the sh#ts!
Anyway I skirted around it and sought out an old church that for some reason I had to find. (At Osmotherley btw) It was down a very crappy green lane and the CT was superb, given it's sheer mass.
After that, a mixture of scenic and fast roads in the North Yorkshire moors. No traffic!
The bike was amazing. 3k on her now and she's better for it.
Back home for a slice of left over pizza and a nap. Nirvana.
