Quick run to Biggin Hill

Penny’s first day at work, sun is shining so an ideal opportunity to go for a quick cycle run.  Set off towards Biggin Hill, then turned around and headed for Keston Ponds.  I had seen that the source of the River Ravensbourne was at a place called Caesars spring – this is the river which flows past the back of my house and runs into the Thames at Dartford.  More info at : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Ravensbourne

So a short run of 21.5km over an hour and a half – so not too energetic at all.  Max speed 43.6km/h and an average of 14.5km/h

Spitfire flown by Pilot Officer Geoffrey Wellum 92 Squadron RAF Biggin Hill in the Battle of Britain.  His memoires “First Light” makes interesting reading.
