A few days away from home this weekend, around the general area of the Coast to Coast route (but not on the bike).

There were a few cyclists on the road, braving some impressive climbs, around Hartshead, and Alston.

However, the most interesting exchange I overheard was not between riders of push-bikes, but between a couple of middle aged men on large motor-bikes.

Biker-1: I heard that you hadn't been well recently. So it's good to see you back on the bike again.

Biker-2: Well the doctor told me that it isn't safe for me to drive the car any more, but he didn't say anything about the bike.

I imagine he was joking.
