A few heavy spots of rain, probably welcomed by Gardeners and my fishing Buddies, greeted the preparations for my ride. Rain jacket on, glasses off, heavy grey clouds ahead but amazingly reached Harbourside Padstow without the anticipated soaking.
Given that I was travelling at speed rather than my normal sedate amble I sent many a Rabbit scampering for safety, however I did have time to admire several pairs of Goldfinches flitting in and out of the bushes, they are quite my favourite small bird – the colours are just stunning.
If we do have rain I will really have to bug the Council to get the margins of the Trail mown, the number of pinch points is rather worryingly increasing by the minute, so my first aid kit had better be topped up.
On a rather more positive note the investment we made in the Draison Low Loader bike (will accommodate any wheelchair) is proving a big hit with both disabled and elderly clients.
As I speak it is chucking it down but the Trail surface is so dry it will take a real downpour to make conditions uncomfortable also I think the weather from tomorrow is set fair again – yes please.
The Trail in all its glory awaits you – safe cycling
