Here's a couple on the route from home to Cheadle.The tunnel-effect is somewhat dissapated by the recent & ongoing seasonal leaf-fall.

Nice.  I love roads like that.

Show these pictures to anyone claiming you don't need more than monlight to ride at night.  In fact lights would help there at midday!

Apologies for the lack of puns in ths post.

When I ride them in summertime * with the trees in full-leaf I do switch on a Hope 1 so that there is no delay in oncoming traffic realising that they are not alone in the gloom

*eta
at rush hour hereabouts.This lane is a rat run to avoid Cheadle town centre for those folk working on the Brookhouse Industrial Estate.

No, is that where your daughter works? I remembered that it was Perry wood, but I couldn't remember which one. :)

She did. She's now at the Horseshoes in East Farleigh - the traveling was too much.

HHHHmmm, nice. Riding down Deak's Lane, near Ansty.



And a little closer in. Yummy lane, though not for your Sunday Best, even in summer.

Certainly never seen cycling south of Sussex
