.... and today was one of them. You know what it's like:

Beautiful sunny morning on the Kent Downs, no wind, rode off full of good Karma

Just the right distance
Just the right hills ( Col de Skelly, Toys, Hogtrough)
Stopped at just the right time and just the right place to eat a banana, (Four Elms village by the pond)
Banana was just the right freshness
Carried just the right amount of fluids
Lots of new smooth tarmac where I least expected it
Exemplary road manners from motorists and other cyclists alike
Spanked the 30mph sign in Keston

The only thing lacking a 10/10 was a tailwind through Biggin Hill and not seeing the Spitfire

... but I did get overtaken by a Bitter SC coupé which I haven't seen since playing Top Trumps at school

Came home with even better karma and arrived just before Mrs M. who walked in with warm sausage rolls from the bakery Laughing

9.9/10

not a ride today, but the perfect final open air pool swim of the year...a glorious morning, the lifeguards let me over run so i could finish my set, coffee and bacon sandwiches for after...works for me...
