I also enjoyed tea and cakes at St Barnabas church, which they do every Sunday during summer. Excellent cake and all proceeds go towards upkeep of the very beautiful church.
Not having been on the bicycle for a while, it's a real shock to get back on the roads and see the rude, aggressive and unpleasant behaviour from a very visible minority of car drivers. It's a small minority, but they can really ruin a pleasant ride out. Speaking as somebody who drives, rides a motorbike and cycles for pleasure and utility, I know all the rules of the road and follow them, and I believe in being patient, courteous and respectful to all other road users, at all times. It's just a shame that some don't feel the same, and it would be wonderful to get them off the roads.

|It's got a 48x16 gearing, if you're interested. Quite a big gear for some of the steeper hills, but you can muscle it out, and on the flats it reaches a cruising speed of about 25-26 mph.|
