Down Tow Up Flow Half Marathon

To & From Hounslow

Thames from Kew Bridge

Got a 105 km sportive tomorrow and was really reluctant to do anything today. Sadly, life never goes the way I want. Ended up riding 38 km to & from an aunt’s place for a family get-together.

Worst part of the trip was a strong head wind all the way there. Good parts were the tail wind on way back, and lovely food for lunch. Best part, without a doubt, was the sunshine we had most of the day and on my ride back.
