Usky rides to Usk

I was awake early again this morning (as usual) and since the day was overcast, but warm I decided I'd go for a nice countryside ride so I got myself together and set off just before 5:30am.

I headed out of the village toward Chepstow with the intention of riding through the country lanes around Shirenewton, but in fact the views across the Severn Estuary from the Earlswood Road were so stunning today I decided to just continue on over the ridge and drop down into Usk.

So the upshot of  this morning's activity was a 33 mile ride, the second 30 mile plus ride this week, that burned over 2,000 calories, which is obviously good for my weight loss.
