Chris, one of my premier cycling chums, and I set out for 30 miles or so along the lanes south west of Buckingham town. This is the vale of Aylesbury – comfortable peddling except for headwinds, which appeared, from nowhere on sections of the route.

We started with two minutes silence and then a coffee in Jenny Wren’s tea rooms in Winslow

Then half way round the village shop in Steeple Claydon provided hot sweet tea and generous hot Cornish Pasties, little wonder I approached the remaining fifteen miles with such relish, passing fields of sheep and red brick farm buildings.

Plans are being laid for another ride in the Vale of A.
