Wednesday 12th January – bike ***** – Around Felixstowe including lunch with ‘Emily’ – sunny, still and mild.

With wall-to-wall sunshine and light winds forecast for today it was the ideal opportunity to get out on the bikes for the first time this year. So, after a morning at home, I made a chicken sandwich with a flask of hot water for packet tomato soup and we left home at 11.45. We headed down to Felixstowe prom first which was a bit of a mistake as it was very busy with people enjoying the sunshine and calm sea, just beautiful. Taking it slow we turned off at The Fludgers and quickly left the crowds behind as we headed down Church Lane where the trees were already starting to blossom:) Then down Marsh Lane crossing open farm land to the delict house and onto Kings Fleet with loads of swans grazing in the fields. Up onto the Deben path for a short way just to see the river before heading inland alongside the Fleet which was mirror calm with fantastic reflections of the trees with only a couple of fishermen as company, in fact we saw next to no one during the bike ride, just how we like it:) It was very wet but luckily the farm tracks were good to ride but we avoided most of our usual paths as would be pretty muddy! Reaching our favourite lunch spot, the church at Falkenham hoping to see some snowdrops, we were a week too early really although there were a few showing. Then we joined ‘Emily’ and enjoyed lunch we the usual great views with loads of birds flitting about including some long-tailed tits:) Well rested we continue to Kirton, then Trimley crossing the A 14 to Grimston Lane spotting the deer in three tree field. We take the footpath around Felixstowe academy and home enjoying a three-hour bike ride in perfect winter weather covering 12 miles. Home for a cuppa and cake followed by a nice sunset – top day:)
