What a treat to discover that Dad had kept a small log of every ride since 2013 when he started seriously cycling. I have read every entry and smiled lots – thank you Dad for leaving this legacy. I will of course continue this with my adventures, comments and mileage record. There are many references to punctures and grumpy cycling companions!
Here’s an excerpt for the captain’s log on 10th March 2015 where Dad rode 21.5 miles from Fenny Bentley to Parsley Hay on the Tissington Trail, Derbyshire;
“A good ride on my own . The outward journey was a little hard due to the wind and the trail condition. Scenery was beautiful, dissapointed the coffee shop was shut at Parsley Hay. The return journey was fast and exciting.”
