On the other side of the Torpoint Ferry, we met John O'Rourke, who had cycled all the way from Callington to join us. The designated destination was Liskeard, but fairy dust was in our pedals and we kept on thinking of new ways to prolong what was an excellent day cycling.
Mike left us after elevenses in Trerulefoot. John made for home in Pensilva and the rest of us - bar Graham Reed, who had somehow missed us after a stop in shop at Pensilva - headed for Upton Croos, Rilla Mill, Linkinhorne and Kelly Bray. There we met up with Graham and, after tea at the Farm Shop, we headed for Gunnislake, the dreadful 1:5 the other side, looming ahead, and then to Drake's Trail.
I parted ways with the others at Yelverton. With sufficient juice still in my battery, I shot down the main road, arriving home at just after six - sixty miles on the clock and the battery still giving me a most gratifying poke.
