Ian’s Solo Lockdown Rides

Pics contributed by Ian R.

Most of us seem to be continuing in the traditions of the IOG – getting out and about in the glorious Suffolk spring on foot or bike. But we are doing it alone rather than in our big convivial gangs. So sharing our expeditions remotely is all the more welcome. Ian’s pictures of his bike rides over the past week look like strong competition for the ‘cake box’ prize for best pic taken during lockdown. Come on folks: give him a run for his money. Further contributions eagerly awaited. [ed.]

8c. Griff Rhys Jones’ alpacas near Holbrook

8f. Slow worm spotted near Alton Water, Tattingstone. I am told these are now a rare sight in Suffolk.
