Phil’s 2nd poster – “The Great Inverurie Bike Ride” 13 miles in torrential rain & miserable temperatures..
(Phil): Been a busy week, so only managed to get round to splotting out a poster for last week’s “fun cycle”. 13 miles of torrential rain in a miserable 9 degrees Centigrade “summer” day in Inverurie. I have never seethed or clenched my teeth like that in all my life. Poor Vaughan was in the “caboose” and decided to start shrieking (blue lips, drenched) at exactly 1/2 way round the course. I had to cycle on ahead of Poppy (8) & Gabi to try to get him back to the car as soon as I could. Poppy was hating every inch of the 13 miles, but Gabi said she really pulled it out the bag in the last 4 miles “to get back to the warm car”.
The Funny thing is, when we got home & had a bath, it was the best feeling ever, we laughed about it… you couldn’t ask for better… well, perhaps.
