Taking a ride out to Churchill this afternoon. Spent the morning sorting out a pile of paperwork that has been accumalting for some time. Very satisfying to get it all sorted and classified. The day is a lot better than 24 hours ago, the wind has dropped though it is still fairly cold.
Makes me smile!
Don't you just love this firm's name. When I were a lad it would have been called a scrap yard. Then breakers yard now End of Life Vehicle Centre.
After getting cold hands on Tuesday, it was time to invest in a pair of inner thermal linings to go inside the gloves I use. Went first to a specialist bicycle place, the Bicycle Chain a big shop in Weston. No good. Nearby was an Aldi shop, always good for cheap gear, a lot of cycling stuff often available. No good. On the way out to Puxton, had to pass a Lidl store, also good for cheap stuff. No good. Perhaps try Halfords tomorrow.
Nelson Arms, Churchill
Went out through Congresbury, Langford which was about 13/14 miles into the ride. By this time was getting a bit cold so in Churchill stopped at the Nelson Arms, on the main road, for a cup of tea. A nice pub but not going there again with a cuppa costing £2. At least I did come out of the place a few degrees warmer.
A nice route that and there is possibility for extensions to it. 25 miles today.
