What a beautiful Autumn day. The old chaps went off on their traditional first Sunday of the month cycle ride this morning. A wonderful ride through our beautiful county, climbing Stouts Hill and gradually working our way across to the Severn Vale. Our target was the delicious cakes provided for cyclists by the talented ladies of Hill. When you look at tables festooned with colourful cakes of all sizes groaning under the weight you think you are in heaven! It acts like a magnet for cyclists who converge on Hill, particularly groups from Bristol. We didn’t need to worry about the calorie intake because we did do over 40 miles altogether.
Yesterday I chose to go by train to Cheltenham to watch my football team. Of course the train was rammed full of rugby supporters going to Gloucester. The football wasn’t great especially from my team who settled for an under par point but we did enjoy an idiosyncratic pub where we met up with many old friends.
