Sat 21st May
Well I suppose our luck had to run out sometime. We were woken up in the middle of the night with the sound of rain on the roof and there was still a bit of drizzle about when we set off in the morning.
I'll show you a good place for breakfast
Last night we went out for a Chinese and a couple of beers. Both were rubbish. The beer is expensive, gassy and tasteless here.
Bob on Hagwilet Suspension Bridge!
A bottle or two of decent ale would be good for Bob's mental well being, he keeps talking about giving it up.
We started by looking for some breakfast and ended up in the historic village of Old Hazelton. Breakfast was eggs Benedictine (now that‘s posh for a couple of bikers).
We rode around 300 miles today. Most of it was pretty boring straight road stuff and the views weren’t much better, not a patch on what we’ve been accustomed to over the past few days.
A bit of trivia that may come in handy in a pub quiz. The egg box was invented by Joseph Coyle from Smithers (a town we passed through today).
We got caught in heavy rain for the first time on this trip and it was also quite chilly as we were riding at around 2500 feet. Bob said at one stop“I think I’ll hook up to the heated clothing just to test it!”
