I was back in the saddle today after a couple of days that got blown away by strong winds.

Firstly, I dropped into Ancestors Coffee on Magdalen Street to meet Ewan from Waterloo United FC – I’m in the process of writing an article about the club, which started during lockdown and has been steadily growing since.

They’re a brilliant community-focused organisation who will be looking to join a local league next season, and they have a real focus on using football as a way to help people with their mental health.

I then went for a 25-miler around Brundall and Blofield, riding at my favourite time of day; I love watching the light fade as I ride. It was a nice easy jaunt, which has taken me to the cusp of 1,000 miles.
