…we skipped breakfast this morning and lunch as a matter of fact. We did finally leave the Hotel room and managed to complete a few chores, posting stuff back to the UK, searching for ‘mani-pedi’ establishments (but not finding any, much to Kat’s disappointment), servicing the bikes etc. Big shout out to Chip at Pibby’s Bicycle Repair who serviced the bikes and changed our tyres for a set of rubbers that according the marketing blurb don’t split under heavy use! …good thing really considering Anthony’s record.
New tyres on and chain gear nicely cleaned and lubricated we headed down to the Richmond Canal Walk (on the bikes though….well, who would walk?) to take in the atmosphere and admire the theatrical scenery.
Tomorrow promises to hold yet more adventures: we’re both looking forward to the short 35 mile stint, and then the 70 mile mega stage on Monday.
