Sunshine between the rain.

Bit of RnR today! We heard the rain from about 6.30am and put off doing the ride from Kendal to Windermere until 9.30, loaded up with waterproof trousers, cagoles and waterproof over-shoes by which time the rain had stopped. Lovely 11 mile ride into Troutbeck and then met up with Rachel's parents and Joe's Dad (Joe's Mum was at work!) and had a lovely lunch and wander round some gardens. So now we've plenty of emergency rations donated by parents for tomorrow.

Got back early evening to do bike maintenance and considered sitting out overlooking Windermere from the Youth Hostel. Having just put the bikes back in the shed, the sky let forth. Which put paid to that idea, but meant we've still not been rained on!

Looking forward to the Kirkstone Pass tomorrow. At least the downhill bit after it. Well, at least the flat bit after that.
