Travels By Jango, Rhino and Helios tandem
Another dry day but windier. At times we were cycling into a strong headwind but the Cornish sunken lanes came into their own and provided shelter.
The roads were busier today. Most drivers have been friendly, with a wave as they pass but a couple seemed to have no regard for their cars, revving hard as they shot past.
The hills have not been so steep today with long slow uphills, lovely views from the high ground and mainly long descents.
While cycling past one farm there was a lovely taste of summer in the air. They must have just cut cereal and the air was full of the taste of the grain. Shortly afterwards a bumble bee suffered a sudden diversion to its flight path as it flew into my front bag and bounced off at a 90 degree angle!
We have covered 66.5 kilometres today. We had a hot chocolate stop at Lappa Valley Railway and stopped in Padstow for an icecream. Ian had a double scoop of Ginger Fairing and Honeycomb Crunch, I had a gooseberry ice and orange and mascapone, very enjoyable.
Our B&B tonight is in Bodmin, a 5km uphill diversion, but at least it will give us a downhill start tomorrow!
