Today was a big day – our first ride together. I flew over from the Isle of Man to spend the weekend with Liz and Chris so we could get used to cycling together as a group and to discuss some of the many planning issues.
We went out for 83 miles, stopping off in Marlow for lunch and then just 10 miles later for coffee and cake. The picture is taken at the cafe, which we highly recommend!
We had a few minor hiccups along the way – ending up in a graveyard, a chain coming off and forgetting the sun cream on what turned into a beautiful sunny day.
But all in all, it was great to finally get out all together and we returned home feeling a little more prepared for the adventure ahead.
