What should have been an ‘easy’ day was messed up by mechanical issues. Stuart had a puncture early in the afternoon, then a 2nd and a 3rd. Eventually he found a split I’m the tire wall through which the tube was escaping and getting ripped so a trip to the bike shop for a new tire was needed.
So we ended up reaching our hotel at almost 7pm. Our accommodation is a grotty hotel (or quite a nice prison) but we are mostly too tired to care.
Tomorrow we will be in scotland, cleverly staying in the one part of the country with rain while the soft southerners enjoy their mini-heatwave.
