A rare sunny morning greeted me, which since the hosepipe ban has been a rare visitor to these parts. Sunny Sunday mornings never fail to put a smile on my face and the thought that toady's ride would be a good one.
Early Sunday mornings are a treat for me, getting up while the rest of the house is still sleeping and clicking effortlessly into my pre-ride routine.
- coffee machine on
- milk onto bowl of high fruit muesli
- radio on
- juice poured
- bread into toaster
- bottles made up
The route was a good 43 miles on quiet lanes and included Waddington Fell, as seen on the Tour of Briton, which is a nice leg burner but rewards your effort with stunning views and a 50 mph descent into the very pretty village of Waddington. Here you will find a very cycle friendly cafe that has great coffee and lovely cakes, cycle locks are even provided if you need to shackle your trusty steed.
Not a bad way to spend a Sunday morning
