Evening Ride - Shinfield & Ryeish Green

Managed to do the trip I was going to do the other night which I had to cut short, although even in its entirety it was turning out to be a lot less mileage than I had thought, so I tagged a bit of extra distance by coming back home a slightly longer way.

On the way down Whitley Wood Road I managed to get the old bike up to 26.4 mph. I could have gone faster but in just cloth shorts and a tee shirt I felt more than a little bit worried that "something" would happen to make it a there's a sharp corner at the bottom to negotiate.

I guess the trip is good if I'm after something quick, but it is a little short for my liking even if I go the longer way home.

Route HERE

Distance: 6.54 miles
Time: 40 minutes 51 seconds
Average Speed: 9.6 mph
Maximum Speed: 26.4 mph


  1. Nice top speed mate but I know what you mean you never know what is around that corner

  2. Nice man! Is that a new record speed for you? Feels great to get that wind blowing through your hair!

  3. Well I went faster when I was younger and less worried about blow outs etc, but this is the fastest I've cycled in at least 10 years, maybe longer.
