First big road ride

James made his first successful long road ride. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/2956566354

This took in a very quiet route between Norwich and Plumstead, including the Marriots Way cycle path. We were only passed by about 20 cars in the whole journey.

We had been given warnings that Marriots Way could be muddy and difficult, but the long summer had seen to it that we had no problems.

There was a great deal of talk before the ride from the boy that he was going to sprint the whole way, but in the end the pace was steady, with an increasing number of stops as we got further in (a phenomenon I know well from Audaxes).

Also worth noting that he managed to polish off a whole Kendal mint cake in these stops!
