The photo shows Amy riding up to meet me at Rivington Pike very early this morning. Inspired by reading the blog of another local rider we decided to do a breakfast ride. Between us we took a stove, pan, plate, oil, bacon, ketchup, bread rolls and orange juice (neither of us thought to bring a fork so the bacon was flipped using a tyre lever). Breakfast was underway while the sun was still rising. It was freezing up there, I had no idea bacon could take so long to fry in such conditions (it took a while for the penny to drop and make us use the plate as a lid to speed up the cooking). Even though we'd both packed lots of extra clothes we both got pretty cold, my hands were numb for most of the ride down which made for some precarious braking. An absolutely top way to start the day though.
