Ride with Paul to make the most of the good weather. Sadly, the weather wasn't on board with this plan and was horrible throughout. Lacking the kit for bad weather biking, I had to wear multiple gloves and loads of layers and still only just managed to stay warm. Feet frozen solid by the end.
In spite of it all though, this was a thoroughly enjoyable ride and good to have some company to make it fun. Felt good until the last climb up Padley Gorge, where the elastic snapped and I got dropped.
