Highlights of my day...

The Sun - taking off my Softshell gilet and just riding in a merino baselayer and longsleeve jersey was so nice! No gloves or overshoes too, felt good!

Reading about how well my cousin Emma Grant is getting on in California riding for her new team!

Good luck mentions for Kuurne Brussels Kuurne on Twitter from the legends that are Adam Blythe and Dean Downing!

The dude I have seen a few times on Lea Bridge road, always wearing Saxo-Bank Pro Team kit head to toe, if this guy had an S-Works I would be thrown! I do a double take every time I see him. Dedicated.

The tailwind that tricked my head into thinking I was absolutely flying on the way out into Essex today. [note - it later became my sworn enemy when I turned for home]

My ride today.
