Sunday 30 October – Following footsteps – 45 miles
Took daughter 2 (Katie) for a leisurely ride to Shere, taking in Staples (and Sandown, and those two climbs after West End). The plan was to meet Mum and Daughter 1 at Shere for a wander and coffee in the Dabbling Duck at midday. Katie stormed the route and we arrived an hour and a half early. Best Moment? Katie was pushing on determinedly up Staples, complaining – “Dad, you said this was flat”. Another cyclist who was struggling to overtake her turned to her and said – “Do not believe anything your father tells you”. Wise words indeed.
