I headed down to Buckinghamshire to compete in the Men's National 25-mile time trial, and made sure to squeeze in some hilly miles in the process. Having collected my TT bike from Streetlife (Norwich) with a new Sram Stages power crank, and stopped off near Ely to collect a Garmin Forerunner 310xt triathlon computer, I headed for Aylesbury and turned off at Wingrave to mess around on my road bike:

The A404 is beautifully smooth and gently rolling. Quite a contrast to the short stretch of the A4 that I went on; not looking forward to all those roundabouts either!

After the time trial, I went straight back to my B&B, enjoyed a full English fried breakfast, and hit the hills just north of Marlow:
