Sunday March 21st 2021 – I felt better, and the day was bright, if not actually sunny. I got the daily jobs out of the way and headed out in the afternoon through Weeford and on the A5 to Atherstone. From there, I pushed up through Pinwall and through Ratcliffe Culey to Shenton; after that, over to Market Bosworth, Bilstone, Twycross and I managed to hit Orton on the Hill just in time to catch the sunset.
As night fell I returned via Austey, No Mans Heath, Clifton and Darlaston.
The sun came out eventually and rendered a magical golden hour.
A ride of well over 60 miles, it was thoroughly enjoyable and it was so glad to be seeing those little villages and quiet lanes again.
And of course, the beauty of a dusk skyline with a church spire elegantly punctuating it.
