Easy Abbey Exploration (12 July 2014)
This again was planned as a short ride. We decided to explore Easby Abbey just outside Richmond. I rode the trike out and did an extended ride to the east back. The road out to the Abbey was quite an easy ride and the Abbey was worth a visit. However, riding east, you quickly reach the A1 and its heavy traffic volumes. I had to ride up a stretch of it or return the way I had come. I decided to ride up to the next road. However, the heat and fumes from the traffic made it uncomfortable riding. I was pleased to get back onto country roads with less traffic and clearer air.
