My commute into work takes me along the A24 to Dorking, past Box Hill and the Denbies vinyard and escarpment.
Driving in this morning, the weather is warm and dry, the hawthorn hedges are just about to burst into life, the sun is shining and the sky is blue. Perfect conditions in fact to put some zest back into tired legs.
When I got into work, one of the first things my colleague said to me was ‘bet you’d like to be out riding today?’
Yes, is the short answer! Anyone who has some time on their hands today should head for the hills.
