Southport with Jumbly

I headed over to Jumbly's this morning to ride to Southport, it feels like ages since we rode together (probably something I've done) so it was good to get out again. For various reasons she hasn't been on her bike so much recently so we had decided on a nice long ride out to Soutport. I turned up to find we were both dressed in fat cyclists jerseys, we did get a few comments along the way. The ride was pretty normal out to Southport, a bit too much traffic around and very hot!!! Once there we found a chippy for our healthy lunch. Then it was down to the sea wall for ice-creams - which melted so fast in the heat - and a little sunbath before starting to head back towards Bolton.

We'd only just started out when we realised that Vikki had lost one of her cleat bolts, so we tighten the other one up tight and Vikki decided just to not unclip with that foot - it seemed to work, as we got back fine.

A great day and a good opportunity to top up my cyclists tan. I was tired as the way back from Vikki's felt tough.

Oh and I apparently burnt 3200 calories


  1. I had an absolutley top day out, was just what I needed, bikes, chips, ice-creams, perfect weather! Thanks!

  2. 3200 calories... that's the chips and ice cream accounted for then!
