A fantastic day


Today started with a bit of a tiff (more on that later!) but with air cleared we stepped out into the pure Yorkshire rain and started pedalling through the Dales. You haven’t lived until you’ve had Yorkshire rain driven up your nose and into the back of yor throat. A bit like nasal colonic irrigation I imagine! Anyway the ride to Sedbergh and beyond was amazing. Even Luke who was pedalling mostly on his heals by this point really enjoyed it.
We were led most of the way to Penrith by Jo – what an inspiration that woman is! We were supported until Penrith by Jane, who joined us at Stone after an emergency call out from The Team. Thanks for giving up your weekend Jane to do things you don’t enjoy doing ie drive a car around places you don’t know – your help was much appreciated.

We are now in Scotland and feeling good.
PS: But I am still down to two chain rings . . . .
