Tag Archives: Cycling


Today has mostly been spent on my bike! I’m not a great cyclist, and it must be at least a year since the bikes saw the light of day, but it was so much fun!

We piled the bikes into the back of the car and drove to Torrington when you can get on the Tarka Trail. Our cunning plan was a slow poodle to Bideford and back. Being an old railway line it is flat-ish so fairly easy cycling. The sun shone and we set off at a steady pace.


The views were fabulous and the miles ticked by.


There were faces in the trees too!


We made it to Bideford for lunch and cycled through the town to the lovely Cafe du Parc for coffee and shared a ham & cheese baguette. Lovely!

The cycle back was harder – mainly because I was tired and my bum hurt! But – we made it! Good job really as the car was there!

Dinner has been baked cod, mashed potato and braised leeks. I was starving!

Tomorrow – I have a feeling I will have trouble walking!

Have a super Sunday!

Hair Done, Shopping Done, All Done!

Busy old day! We went into town late morning and had to be creative about our route as the cycling Tour of Britain hit Barnstaple this morning. They evidently started from the Long Bridge at 10.15 this morning – by the time we got there this is all that was left!


Funny! 🙂

Both hubby and I had our hair done, did town – including the necessary Nero’s coffee complete with band!


Then off to the supermarket. The usual weekly grocery shop done!

Home in time for dinner – the usual Thai Prawn Curry & stir fry veg. Boy did I need that!

No purposeful exercise today – so hopefully we will get out and do something tomorrow. Now – Strictly! Yeah!

Have a great evening and smashing Sunday folks!
