i had two VeloCake t shirts made for @gozbike and needed to deliver them. i also was invited to a BBQ in Bidford on Avon, so how better to do both things than to do them by bicycle?. luckily the weather was spot on, early rain turned to cloud and then to full on sunshine, even the headwind wasn't too annoying, i even got a suntan! i tried to keep off the main roads and made good time to Cheltenham, my first stop for the day and dropped off the t shirts, had a much appreciated cup of tea and a gossip in my favourite bike shop - Cheltenham Cycles. i also collected 32 spokes and nipples for a wheel build i'm planning, i was also given s Tean Sky T shirt, so i actually left the shop more heavily laden than when i arrived! i then headed for the BBQ, again on lovely Cotswold roads through picturesque villages and back into Worcestershire for a sun baked meat treat!
