So taking a leaf out of Chris’s diary and her advice to write about whatever I want to write about, I should share with you the major cycle expedition which Alison and I did today. Start at Dunning – along the side of the hills to Forgondenny and back through Forteviot – about ten miles with the wind strengthening and the rain coming. This raises two major issues. Are strong headwinds a greater impediment to forward movement than hills? The answer appears to be yes. Does a pub lunch in Dunning, which one requires as a reward for the headwinds, etc., involve the intake of more than the 400 calories expended in dealing with the headwinds? Yes again.
