71 miles in the sun but the starting temperature was MINUS 2 degrees! Good ride with reliable John, no problems. Kept the HR and effort down as much as possible and generally took it easy, average HR for the ride 123 BPM with a maximum of 155. Felt fine at the end but very hungry! Actual riding time was probably about 4:15, stopped to chat to Ed near Bamburgh and for a couple of glimpses at the map. Went of to Lowick near Holy Island, nice route, lumpy in parts!
