Inbetween showers there was a brief dry spell which we took advantage of. We are both unkeen on getting wet, in the extreme so waiting for some dry time was paramount to us. Its our age, I think.
We start with a nice 3/4 mile gentle downhill before heading left down a country lane, round a very tight bend with a lot of muck and gravel on it, so we tend to creep around as hitting that at any speed would see us sliding on our backsides around the bend and tractors use that road!
Along a bit more until we meet a T junction where we go right and past Carleton Forhoe church until we go right again and back on to our main road and home.
Just wanted to turn our wheels really. We had just got the bikes back into our storage place when the weather turned and it slatted it down. We got soaked walking the 10 metres back to our home. If we’d cycled a tiny bit faster, we would have got home dry. Heigh ho.
