As you probably know, I am a keen cyclist. While I was in the UK I took advantage of the warmer weather to go on a few rides with my sister and brother-in-law. This is one trip we took, through the country roads from Berkhamsted to Wendover.

I have an old bike stored back in the UK. It’s a hybrid mountain bike, with road tyres. I was actually pleasantly surprised at how good it felt to ride. It was an eye-opener, getting back on the British roads. Drivers are so much more aware of cyclists here. But then we ARE a nation of bike riders.

And the Chiltern Hills certainly provide plenty of challenges!
