Target distance: 50 miles (eventually decided after much humming and hawing over this)
Today's ride: 52.54 miles - https://www.strava.com/activities/3746378943 - Resuming VeloViewer tile hunting after a long absence. Climbed Kingston Hill, continued down into Marlow for the first time on a bike, then back up/down/up through Wycombe, before heading home.
---------------------------
Rides in order of distance so far this year:
1. 53.22 miles - 20th June - Some tailwind assisted TT efforts, rest was flat and easy
2. 52.54 miles - 11th July - Kingston Hill, first time to Marlow, back via Wycombe
3. 51.63 miles - 7th March - A rain threatened ride which never really amounted to anything
