Going "back to to 80's" riding on roads seeing how they changed from when I first got into cycling.

Big "5 star" Polo Club - called Dallas! - took me by surprise, looking like "new money" to me!

Burton Dassett remains a favourite, especially with remnants of Knights Templar and stories like this: http://www.grahamphillips.net/ark/Ark_Press_%20Release.htm

Edge Hill (site of first battle in the English Civil War) closed for resurfacing scuppered the route a little.

Edge Hill battleground now has a UK military site on it near to where Knights Templar lived after returning from Jerusalem and where "stone tablets" from Sinai were found, who won the "covenant"? - there is a Dan Brown novel/film in there!

An exploring kind of ride today discovering new lanes and finally having a look at Kedleston Hall - been here a year and first time cycling around it, very "Downton"!
