After the3 Coasts 600 I had a day off work to recover. Ruth called and asked if I’d like to join her and Martin on a ride to Northallerton and back – which I was very happy to do. I had no soreness from the 600km ride, I was still on holiday and the promised gentle ride was going to be a lovely chatty and sunny affair.
In Northallerton we stopped for a quiet lunch, soup and a roll washed down with coffee in a secret little cafe.
On the way home I spent some time flower spotting and wondering at all the different coloured thistles.
