There was still slushy snow on the ground here this morning. Pat and Kev plus Donna (our dog sitter)'s partner were heading out for a VTT mountain bike ride down on the relative flatlands so I was keen to join them. It ended up a muddy, sticky outing (broken by a very welcome coffee and cake stop in Laroque d'Olmes) as we headed round the Lac de Montbel, thanks to the recent rain down there.Kev took a tumble which resulted in a broken rear derailleur. He was therefore stuck with 1 gear with which to limp home. The road (once we reached it) was his only option in that state. Still, we covered around 55kms and had a good laugh so it was an excellent outing in that respect!
