How I love Lincolnshire - just like everyone has been telling me, it's so flat!
It was a good fast ride to day reflecting the terrain and favourable winds - particularly satisfying as I notched up another 100+ miles (my longest ride yet) and spent approaching 7 hours in the saddle.
The scenery, I have to say, was not great - just one agricultural field after another. It was that flat (No climbs whatsoever) that I hardly needed to change gear all day.
Having had lunch in Boston (within a stone's throw of it's landmark, St. Botolphs Church - known locally as 'The Boston Stump'), I cycled from here to Kings' Lynn on the A16 and A17 - this section of road which runs parallel to the bottom end of The Wash, sadly gets my vote as the most boring to date (30 miles of virtually dead straight road with nothing to look at).
I spoke to Emma at Alzheimer's Society - had arranged to meet local press in Great Yarmouth in 2 days time.
