The only downside to today's ride is that we found every single piece of recently resurfaced road in Northamptonshire. I hate riding on that gritty nonsense and at one point it gave Kev a phantom puncture. What's a phantom puncture you ask? Well we both heard a hissing noise come from his bike indicating instant deflation but neither of his tyres lost pressure! Very weird...stupid little stones!!!
That said we really did have a lovely ride on lovely roads. This was a route I've used before and I have to say I prefer going West or North from Kettering.
