Since both me and Ali were not working over Easter a plan was hatched (egg pun fully intended!) to travel up to Kielder/Newcastleton for some biking. A lazy start on friday morning meant we arrived at Newcastleton just before 3pm. Minimal faffage and we were pedalling up the hill to the start of the trails. Into the first section of singletrack and I was having fun and feeling fast. I turned round to check on Ali and she was right there, I offered to let her go first but she told me that she was working hard to stay on my wheel! I suprised both myself and Ali by taking the harder choice at one point. I then had to go back so Ali could watch and record the moment!
Up to the border stone on various fireroads and it was time for a snack, yes I had made oatie cakes!
