Recovery ride, nice and steady to the Fordhall Farm cafe for coffee and cake after the 100 miles yesterday. Just what my legs needed!


I’d arranged a short and very steady recovery ride this afternoon, so as to help my legs after 2 * 100 mile rides in the last few days.

I rode over to Hinstock via Sambrook to meet up with Nic and then we set off on a reasonably flat route to the Fordhall Farm Cafe near Market Drayton. My legs just were not playing ball and it certainly took quite a while to warm them up!


We’d been recommended the cafe by Tim and were not disappointed. Nice coffee and cake and a great outside seating area. The sun was even in attendance, which was really nice, especially after the heavy rain first thing this morning when I opened the curtains!


After the cafe it was an easy ride back via Tern Hill, Wollerton and Stoke on Tern.

A fab ride with great company – just what my legs needed. Now to get back to work!
