We were all set for a good ride with Sam confidently predicting we'd easily do two loops. Then we got going. It was cold. Too cold. Poor Sam was in bits but he manned up and we pushed through numb fingers and toes and got round. That's the trick with cycling. Carry too much kit and it annoys you, if you haven't got enough you'll be cold and no one likes that. I got it wrong! Sorry Sam.
We warmed back up in the cafe and Sam picked out a potential new bike. Niamh has a specialized hot rock and he wants one too. Of course that's not all, he told he he needs a road bike too. Back in the cafe Sam had his third hot chocolate of the week. Now as surveys go this is worth listening to. Sam rated his best hot choc of the week as the one at fineshade. The other places did not do marshmallows, for Sam that's a heinous crime!
It may have been cold but it sure was beautiful. Check out the pictures. How can you not like that?
