i’ve ridden everyday for the last 8 days and i’m feeling the mileage but i couldn’t take a day off, it was too nice! suuny again with light winds, so only one thing for it, a rude to Clent for a bacon sarnie. i took my time, there was no rush so i played around on the way. i took the usual route and got to the cafe to find it packed, mostly with screaming kids, not very peacful, but the bacon made up for it. feeling full i tackled the next climb either to absorb the sarnie or barf it up.thankfully the former and after one of the best descents at clent i returned by the route i took about 2 weeks ago, then the bridleway was axle deep in places but today it was dry, dusty and flattened enough to roll the final section without pedalling, result! nearing home i had a sudden craving for ice cream and i knew that the ice cream van sometimes parked at the top of beacon hil, so after a long grind of a climb i turned into the car park to find it devoid of ice cream…noooo! so, after a few trails through the Lickey hills i made it home for a mint magnum treat in the garden.
