a quick bivvy

Time's sure short these days, trying to fit everything into a busy summer time.

This Saturday we sent the dog on hols for a night and grabbed a quick trip into the hills. A late afternoon train ride to 20 miles away then a circuitous route to a favourite bivvy spot.  Scorching hot evening and morning sandwiching a deliciously warm night.

Shona had her new Brooks Cambium to try out. On the face of it this one's ideally suited to the messier side of biking - no worries about getting leather wet and dirty. No bedding in either, comfortable from the off with a flexy but supportive shape. Once we've got some more miles in we'll report back, looking good so far!

Back in town for a 11 o'clock breakfast and that leaves the afternoon for chores. Nothing better than waking on a hillside at 5am in the blazing sunshine, gotta grab those moments when you can...
