90+ miles for the week! At last some decent miles. I rode to work 3 days and the mileage was looking poor. But we got out on the tandem yesterday, just down to Bond’s and back but by a bit of a circuitous route, so got just under 20 miles in.
I wasn’t planning on going out today. We got up late and I was preparing a full fried breakfast, eggs, bacon, black pudding, mushrooms and toast, when I got a text from Karl. They were going out to Beacon Fell and back, be at mine for 10:15. We wolfed down our breakfast and I got changed. Then got a text saying Joe was running late. They eventually turned up at 10:45. The ride out was OK, but as we started climbing the mist came down and a damp chill soaked through us. A cup of tea at the visitor’s centre revived us, but not our clothes. On the 40mph descent, my sodden gloves froze. I didn’t get feeling back til this afternoon. After a quiet run through the lanes, I got back in time to watch Scotland loose to France.
I’ve still not warmed up properly.
