The plan was to go and walk a dog, cycle to the next dog 5 miles away, walk her and then cycle back to the first dog to collect the car. This morning I got a message saying that dog 1 had the squits so not to come walking. Then the person in a nearby street wanted a dog groomed so plan A crashed and burned.
Plan B was born, we got on our mountain bikes, road up the main road, turned right and then rode half way back, off road on tracks through the woods. That was hard work, made harder by the fact that I had my 3/4 length gym shorts on and not my 3/4 length cycling shorts. My bum aches now, all that off roading with no extra bottom padding make for an 'interesting' ride.
4.56 miles, 35 minutes of bum-numbing riding and I now have a quick cuppa before going to walk the second dog in the original equation. Only 30 mins walking but we can stride out with this one.
Keep on sparking folks.
