More fantastic riding, usually finishing with a thrilling descent to the valley bottom, where we get a lift back to the farmhouse for a refreshing beer / tea and cake.

If the weather is especially hot we may start and finish a little earlier. We always try to do the majority of the climbing in the cooler hours of the day.
