We had limited time and picked Saturday as the day to go for our cycling adventure. And Saturday turned out to be a perfect day since the sun was out and had just wonderful temperatures. I must say that this was the best trip weather wise that I have experienced in England. It was so good that France was actually colder and wetter than in England.
Jim and I decided to keep it simple by going up through the abandoned railroad (now turned running, walking, and cycling trail) to Wetherby and then stop at Sykes House Farm for meat on the way back.
First, we let the Cordovas get used to the bikes for a couple of minutes and instructed them on what side of the road to ride and which way to look first. And then it was time to set off.
|I love this picture of Jim and I heading out on our bikes.|
|Waiting for the Cordovas to get done with the bridge.|
|Here they come.|
|This was a very cool picture.|
|I love this picture for obvious reasons.|
|Am I trying to speed race down a flat hill?|
|Waiting on the Cordovas to catch up.|
|She's trying to copy me.|
Finally, we got to Wetherby. We stopped by the bike shop so they could tighten up something or make something better on Ray's bike. We then headed to Muse Pub for some beer and cider; I was in the mood for cider. And afterwards, we checked out Wetherby.
|Jim and I's bicycles. So pretty.|
|They do have fly fishing in Boston Spa.|
|Tea called beer.|

|It was so beautiful outside that we moved the dinner to the backyard.|
