Hot and sunny yet again. We eased the navigation today by taking the A38 through Bristol - scary! My legs are fine, but bum hurts so much that I'm thinking of routing up as many hills as possible so I can stand up more! I've also been thinking how cars have ruined this fine land, and am amazed at how many nuts and bolts there are at the side of the road - how come so many cars still work? It thundered for the last 15 minutes of our ride - we would have missed it if I could find my mum's house (I've been before, honest!)!
"Nick, you do know where your mum lives, don't you?"
5 miles, 1 thunderstorm and 3 wrong turns later... "I think I'll give my mum a call...!"
