Actually, in this case it was a case of admiring the poppies.
Fresh from my ride with Hendo into Knatts Valley, I’d been reminded of just how fantastic greater London and its abundance of countryside was looking. For reasons that I am entirely unaware, the poppies had taken over a number of fields with full force on the way out towards Eynsford (see previous post) and the results were nothing short of spectacular.
I decided that Ashley would no doubt appreciate this and that I had to show her. She even wore her floral Freddie Merckx jersey as a fitting tribute.
Was this all a ruse to squeeze in another few kms before the week was through?
I couldn’t possibly say.
We both enjoyed it though.
