Sid’s first 33 miles

I decided to use my fixed wheel Sid Mottram for my early morning ride today.

My plan was to do a couple of my regular 12 mile loops just in case I had any issues.

As I approached the top of the mad mile I made the executive decision to head off towards Holcot village .

After stopping for the above picture in Holcot I set off towards Pitsford which gave me two route options if needed .

I stopped at Pitsford parish church for a quick photo before cycling off towards Boughton . As I glanced down at my Garmin I noticed that my average speed was a very good 14.5 mph which considering the route so far impressed me .

Another photo stop in Boughton in front of some thatched terraced cottages situated on a sharp downhill right hand bend just before the village church.

Next village to be visited was Moulton where I stopped in the village square for the above picture.

As I cycled away from Moulton I decided to head home rather than go further afield as my fingers were starting to feel slightly chilly .

Once I had ridden through Overstone and Sywell I had a quick ride around the industrial units at Sywell airport but failed to find a good spot for another picture so pressed on towards home .

As I neared the bottom of the mad mile I decided that the above industrial barrier would be my final picture of the day.

So 33 miles on another of my winter road bike fleet had been completed .

  1. You certainly have some nice places to ride. Interesting and classic old building and what looks like pleasant, quiet roadways without a lot of car traffic. While we have a lot bike lanes along our roads, there isn’t much to look at. Most buildings are less than 50 years old. The residential areas have a few nice, interesting houses, but are mainly cookie cutter tract built houses that have no personality. Some off the roads along the river provide nice scenery, however, the auto traffic can be distracting. Sadly, Americans are too tied to their cars.

    Cheers,
