Training was really different, with new routes and new things to see...
On Saturday, a 80k ride through wind farms and regular farms.
I had a brush with some livestock when I came across a bull trotting along the road towards me. Now, I've seen those photos of cyclists being chased by bulls. I didn't want that to happen to me. I slowed down, then unclipped, then came to a stop. During which time the bull slowed down, stopped, turned around and started walking, then running in the other direction.
I got back on my bike and started riding after him. He nipped into his paddock through a hole in the fence and kept on running.
A lucky escape perhaps..!
Some other photos from my ride:
The next day it was time for a run. KKB followed me in the car to make sure I didn't get lost, run out of drinks, or happen upon any more livestock.
