I arrived at the bridge to find I was on my tod initially, so I proceeded to pump up my rear tyre whilst waiting. Andy E then joined me and soon after him, Mike. We discussed the weather (very British!) and firstly chose our preferred cafe for break, somewhere Mike has missed until now, and from that we had direction and Mike with the only map, so he was leading!
We managed to get to The Engine House, Kelly Bray in the dry, we had a lovely snack and a catch-up there and watched the drizzle sweeping towards us across the valley. Unfortunately it arrived before we left there and got steadily worse as we hastened home. I was in shorts still - optimistic I know! I was a bit concerned my lovely French tan would wash off!! We arrived back at the bridge thoroughly soaked, with a sort ride of 24 miles for the boys and 32 for me, and the rest of the afternoon to dry off!!
