Sadly, some people dump rubbish by the roadside. The council’s are doing more to clean up and I do a little by picking up bottles to prevent glass from being spread about. I just wish the minority who dump would think before they throw.

Quite a good cycling week. The end result is the kilometre count is back over 100k, the brakes on the trike are fixed and the cucumber sandwiches and G & T’s were enjoyed in the sun after the Tweed Ride.
I am starting to feel more confident riding longer distances on the Anura and so I thought I would give the above loop a go as it adds more hills to the mix.

Sorry dear readers, I will try to keep the evangelical recumbent nonsense to a minimum.
