Bank Holiday Monday, clear blue skys, it can only mean one thing. Tea and cake at Chew Valley Lake.
I was out of the house just after 9, and got to Ians nearly 20 minutes early, and an hour later and we were sat down at Chew Valley having spent the princely sum of £1.80 on tea and cake, bargain. We took the "new" route home and tweaked it a bit to cut out a mile or so of main road round the edge of Keynsham. The dark clouds were looming so I raced home trying to beat the rain, and managed it by 20 minutes or so, the rain forecast for midday finally arriving just before 1pm.
In the end I did a nice gentle 33.5 miles in 2.5 hours, mostly in glorious sunshine. Is there a better way to spend a morning?
