17th Sept 1944: bikes and bugs

17 Sun. Very mild, lovely sunny day for time of year. Heard three distant rockets to-day. For an enjoyable cycle ride through Cheam, Barnstead, Belmont to Burgh Heath, returning via Ewell & Old Malden. There are some very fine views from the high ground at Belmont, and a long and rapid descent from the latter to Ewell; freewheeling almost all the way. Mrs. Knight and Jean called gave Jean some roses. Warning from 8.45 to 8.53 p.m: no incident – doodlebugs, I expect. Yes, they were. Of the three rockets, one fell at Ladywell, Lewisham and another at Sanderstead.
