Today we decided we must use the bikes.......Bad move!!!
We built the bikes up and set off for Market Harborough . It all started rather well and the scenery was fantastic, but on getting into Foxton, British Waterways were cutting the hedgerows with a hedge trimmer. It was great to see that your hard earned money was being used to trim towpath hedges, but these were thorn bushes and the thorns were being scattered all over the towpath. There was a guy trying to clear up the bits and pieces but not doing a good job of it. We had not noticed until it was too late, and out come the puncture kit.
My worry was for the Dogs being walked along this section and the thorns getting under their feet or a child falling over and one going through their hand, and yes we were angry that we had to sort out our puncture!!
We then got off on our merry way but it was too late to get to Market Harborough so we headed back.
Into the sunset....
When we got back to Derwent6 we got out a couple of bottles of Derwent6 Ale (yes Derwent6 Ale) thanks to brother Cliff. They went down well with a Ali Curry.
