When we woke up this morning the sky looked like this.
So we decided to pack a picnic and go for a bike ride.
Ellie said “the perfect spot for a picnic will be a river, with birds chirping and a beautiful view”. That’s the bar set pretty high then!
We set off through the town…
… but in no time at all we were gliding through the open country.
This was the view just 2 miles into the ride from our house (you have permission to be jealous).
After a good five miles cycling, we found a picnic spot. Does this meet your exacting standards, Ellie?
We set off again, and arrived at the Old Manor Bridge, the foot of a tricky 200ft climb.
Luckily , we were rewarded at the top of the hill with this panoramic view.
Going down the other side of the hill was much easier. There’s Peebles at the bottom.
As a reward for our efforts, we all had……. ice cream of course!
Here’s our stats.
