Local Race, Lazy Day

Sunday morning was again bright and beautiful but with a chill in the air, at least at the start of our ride.  We went as far as Mouton before heading back via Fontenille and La Salle.

Arriving home after stopping for coffee we were very pleased to find that Mo had been a good girl two days in a row – no protest puddles (or piles).

The course was several km and they did between 7 and 10 laps depending on which of the three groups they were in.
