The route took us over Jacobs ladder, down the Beast and down plantation. The downhills were so technical I was reduced to walking at times, while my friends flew down them. I need to get my head round technical rocky riding!
Lunch stop was at jacobs, the railway cafe has completely changed. With friendly staff, it seems twice as big and fantastic food. Well worth dropping into now!
We caught the train back from Dore and I made the velodrome in time to have a shower before Ali started racing (more about that in another post).
