Rain. We've been lucky so far this year. But this morning it was tipping down.
We'd arranged to meet some friends for lunch at Hassop, so we left it as late as possible before we ventured out.
Once again we took to the Monsal Trail.
The good thing about the rain though was that there were relatively few other people out on the trail.
In Bakewell Minipips does his pirate impression.
Shortly after we bumped into Amy, Ali and Hannah.
We rode to Hassop and had a rather nice lunch.
By the time we left to get a few more miles done, it was well after 2pm. This meant that once again we'd be finishing in the dark.
Not to worry though the tunnels have lights.
The tunnel pictured above is the longest on the Monsal Trail at 490 metres.
On our return journey, as we were about halfway through the tunnel, all the lights went out.
Dark in a tunnel isn't night time dark, it is black nothingness. It was quite scary.
Thankfully even though it wasn't turned on, I did have a light. With the light now turned on, and our hearts pumping to the max, we made our way back to the car.
34.7 miles today. Which leaves just over 40 to do tomorrow for the #festive500. Oh and there's a 4 mile run to fit in as well to complete the Run 20+13.
