Weather: Dry, warm and sunny.

Accommodation: Carlton Hotel

Retracted much of the route I had taken yesterday, back to Ipswich. In the early part, however, it differed as I deliberately decided to cycle pass Duxford Airfield and the War Museum at a time when we are commemorating the 70th anniversary of the 'Battle of Britain' back in September 1940.

Today's ride also differed in respect of its' ease thanks almost enitrely to a following tailwind which made it quick and I was back in Ipswich by 3:30pm.
