Wednesday 30th July, Launceston to Newquay44 Miles Yesterday’s ride took us from Launceston to Newquay and the first six miles took us nearly an hour and a half. It would probably have been quicker to have been sat in a supermarket trolley and been pushed. It was caused by three flat tyres and adverse weather conditions. The weather conditions lasted all day and only the last hour was done in anything other than driving rain. The ride itself was quite tough with lots of short sharp climbs. The countryside was amazing. At one point we were asked to stop to let a group of horses past. We thought incorrectly that they would be accompanied by riders. But they were being driven down without restraint - about 20-30 of them. Today I am sad. I’d actually just like to be cycling on my own. With my own thoughts and in my own head. The grief has completely overtaken me this morning. Mike.
