25th June wet and windy and hilly lovely
Slow start in the morning as its raining and there’s a cloud of midges hovering just outside my hammock. The washing I did yesterday I hung up to dry is soaked. But we’re away eventually and straight into a horrible headwind. Following the E39 as best I can but a lot of it is not open to cyclists so a few diversions are needed. End up riding over two rather large hills. All the while the headwind is fighting me and there’s heavy showers. By the end of the day I’m completely exhausted, manage to cook tea and scoff it before I’m asleep by seven.
