A top weekend with @lynsdouglas mostly involving bikes:
• Local MTB bike ride with sushi picnic on Friday night • Night away in Ricky in Sussex including "station bike" ride to local pub
• Rounded off by trailing Lyns the madwoman as she cycled 70 miles home on her "posh bike"!
Can't wait for more adventures in Ricky...still needs decking out with his conversion though! A mattress on pallets and a strapped in chest of drawers isn't so bad though!
A letter, a card, a postcard, even a note left on the kitchen table. The modern era is seeing these die out; being replaced by emails, texting, whatsapp and various forms of social media constantly updating the world of our latest move, let alone our friends and family of our latest holiday.
So, these days, when you receive a handwritten card through the post, not just any old card, but a handmade card, it's touching and so very much appreciated. Thank you so much @gabrielle.ridge for having the thought and the creativity to send this! It made my day! How good is that picture of me!
Well done @hazelbowenridge, you've brought up a good'un here!
Turns out I had a bit of practice at the finals course of the European Champs to win the bronze at the weekend. Well on 4 out of 6 of the upstreams anyway, except that it was 12 years ago! Check out the finals course of the Worlds 2006 when I won silver versus the Europeans 2018!

EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP BRONZE! 🥉
So pleased to have 3 clean runs through the racing this weekend to walk away with the bronze medal! Being able to put down a solid run in the final on such a tricky course is something to be proud of. .
Big well done to @ricarda_funk for taking the top honours 🥇 and @canoe_conni for the silver 🥈. An impressive weekend for the @british.canoeing team with @rwestley being crowned European Champion in C1M and @slalom_burgess joining him on the podium in silver. That all following @mallorysfranklin taking silver yesterday in C1W and the C1W team taking the gold! 👊
Big thank you to the wider British support who travelled out to cheer us down the course. 🇬🇧 But most of all to @lynsdouglas for taking the time out from her busy schedule to look after me! 😘
