Another springlike (mainly) sunny day, and I woke up looking forward to our first bike ride of the year. V had planned a route and made a picnic and we set off in very upbeat mode. Got lost a few times as is our wont, but lots of laughs as we stopped to consult the map, adjust the settings and generally get back on track.
Approaching Pencaitland we started to realise we probably couldn’t do the full 30 miles she’d planned so headed back on a different route (still 26miles...! extra), and at one point had a break on the side of a beautifully ploughed field to rest our legs and eat a crunchie bar....a few cyclists stopped to check we were ok as I guess we looked a bit collapsed!
Home and had a shower then a very lazy late afternoon and evening resting my legs.
Great day though, despite the aches and pains!
