Running out of Sundays!
Our 100 mile Sunday training rides are very quickly passing us by with just two remaining before we set off for Cornwall. Last weekend saw us take in a ride south to the popular Cafe D'Lune near Conder Green. To avoid traffic we used the Morecambe to Lancaster cycleway and then the Millennium bridge over the River Lune. This linked to St George's Quay and then the Lune Estuary path, a hard dusty path that was good fun to ride.
Cafe D'Lune lived up to it's expectations with great food and excellent prompt service.
We then took a route home via Caton, Borwick and Milnthorpe.
Our penultimate ride this Sunday sees us climbing up and over Kirkstone pass then skirting around Ullswater and Thirlmere before heading home through Grasmere and Coniston. No doubt coffee and cake will be involved somewhere!
The final ride the following Sunday will be a short local one so that our legs can recover in time before we start our grand adventure.
On the subject of legs we are grateful to Sport Tape for helping us out. You may well have seen athletes and even celebs on tv programs such as Sport Relief wearing tape over certain muscles. Designed to mimic the skin, kinesiology tape integrates with the body’s sensory system naturally to enhance performance and aid recovery. Their products will come in very handy at some point during our 10 day ride.
