I’ve been off all week. Its been a mixed experience.
Sunday, I went out with Ian and Joe, to Chipping and back via the back of Beacon Fell. The wind coming back was horrendous but we made good time.
Monday, Jayne and I rode out on the tandem to Garstang. We needed porcini, proscutto and papardelle pasta for a recipe we were going to make. Booth’s in Garstang were bound to have these. They had none! In the end (Wednesday) we used ordinary dry mushrooms, lardons and snapped in half lasagne sheets. It was great.
Tuesday I was supposed to ride round the Trough with Ian, but only got 10 miles up the road before being recalled to home. the home stretch was done at an average of 20mph though.
Wednesday, Jayne and I drove pout to Chipping, then set off for Scorton. This was several climbs and quite hard, even if only 30 miles.
Thursday was a bit damp, so we had a stay at home day. Jayne went bowling in the evening and I went out to the Plough with Karl, Alison and Ian.
Today we' drove up to Stavely and rode out to Levens and back. Considering it is the busiest part of the Lakes, it was surprisingly quiet. A good 30 miles of country lanes
Off mountain biking tomorrow!
