It was another most enjoyable day today. Cloudier than the previous two days, chillier too and a little head wind for the last hour or so, but conditions favourable for cycling.
No problems with weight, balance or control today either. If this load was all I had to carry for the duration of my cycle tour, I would be sorted. But as I will require more, a trailer is the only sensible choice for me and I think I have that chosen now too.
This evening is my last night of warm and comfortable surroundings - I begin camping from tomorrow. Tonight I am staying with a friend I made on the Cytech course so I will endeavour to enjoy both the company and a nice warm bed. I have just looked at the weather for tomorrow and can expect rain and snow! Glad I didn't leave the waterproofs at dad's!
Some pictures from today :)

|Glad I was going rather then coming. Wouldn't have wanted to end the day with this climb.|
