Another lovely dry, sunny day, with a strong Northerly wind blowing. I clipped in to the pedals and set off through Dundonald, up the greengraves road across to Bradshaws Brae through Netownards and out the Portaferry coast road.
I was just cruising along nicely when another cyclist came around me at pace so I decided to jump on his wheel and match his pace. With the North wind behind me and a wheel in front of me punching a hole in the air I was motoring along at a very fast pace for not much more effort than earlier when cruising along solo and soon we were at Mount Stewart where I peeled off to sit in the Sun for a few minutes.
Not wanting to sit too long incase I either got a chill or the legs seized up I was soon on my way again back in the same road to Newtownards, enjoying the views across Strangford Lough to Scrabo and I decided to go home via Scrabo, Comber and the Greenway.
