Probably didn't help this by going out cycling the next day. Went over to the Ridgeway at Aldworth and along a bit-- great fun, although I can see why the RA is concerned about the surface, which is atrocious. Even for a mountain bike. Not that I saw many other cyclists-- lots of walkers, 4x4s and trail bikes though. Got gloriously muddy, and also a bit tired, and another puncture. (Particularly annoying since I had to fix one before I set off). Eventually crawled in to Newbury and got the train back. May try it again next time and cut down on the diversions so I can get to Hungerford, which is where I was heading for. There is a Round Berkshire Cycle Route that is occasionally waymarked (and marked on one of my two local Landrangers) that I was trying to follow. It not being marked on the Newbury/Didcot one is a real pain for gonig out that way though :|
Then came back and after a quick dinner (tuna steak + veggie stir fry) got roped into helping clean up the house, vacuuming etc. Which just made me sneezy in addition to having a sore throat. Bleeargh, as they say.
