My usual commute to work is my 2nd 30 Days Wild. It’s a 8.5 mile cycle through gorgeous countryside.
The crisp green hedges are marked by grand oaks providing shelter for squirrels, rabbits, pheasants and partridges. There are plenty of perches for buzzards and kestrels to survey their surroundings.
It’s a peaceful ride but not a quiet one, as the air was full of bird song – skylark, yellowhammer and chiffchaff were all singing their little hearts out.
I even saw two hares running in the distance across a farmer’s field.
Not a bad start to the day, not bad at all!
