I think this is the first time ever that the roads here are in better condition than the the roads basilic is riding. :)

kervelo, clean roads are overrated - they attract cars

I like how you waited for the wave to crash.
Do you do McAskill-style stunts on those rocks?

basilic, I rode the short trail, then the beginning of the rocks but stopped at the first VW-sized gap. I'll give it a better effort next time. Would be a fun spot for McAskill I'm sure. Hard enough walking with cycling shoes for me.

I like spring in the UK.

160km, 5:01hrs, the new England
Had a Swedish friend who loved gummy candies, inspired by the sight of them at the store... so that was my fuel for the ride, along with 385ml of water, as it would turn out.
