First sunny ride of the year to Bury St Edmunds and Clare and Cavendish

Weather in the UK went from horrible late winter to heatwave literally overnight last week, so my ride today, out from Cambridge was the first in good weather since last October. I have ridden through rain and wind to keep this bike going and even enjoyed it though the bike has got dirtier on each ride. Today I rode out to Bury St Edmunds via Mildenhall and back via Cavendish, which must be one of the most beautiful villages in the country. There were lots of bikers out, a couple of them behind me from Mildenhall most of the way to Bury, a little intimidating but I noticed they kept scrupulously to each village speed limit, suggesting it was someone out doing some training.
