Today was pretty tough. Much slower than the last couple of days, although that may be to do with the extended elevation, the increased temperature, or just a bit of cumulative tiredness. The Ringland Hills were particularly taxing; I barely made it to the top in the lowest gear.

I started warming into it as the ride went on, and by the time I hit 20 miles I was ready to keep going! Still, I need to keep half an eye on the saddle sore situation, as I don’t want to overdo it so early in the ride and end up having to take time out.

I found a nice little curiosity in the tiny village of Wramplingham; the village sign is actually planted in the river!
