The children, part of bike club, went to Kielder Reservoir. We started off very cool and relaxed but by the end of the day we were the opposite (sweaty and tired!).
When we got there we got off the mini bus and got our bikes off the trailer. We waited for bike tyres to be pumped up whilst we went to the toilet or had a quick snack. Next we took a quick but artistic photograph of everyone together on their bikes ready to go. Restless with excitement, we set off.
The first part of the trip was easy but then the challenges started to appear. The path that had started as flat became a slog upwards. (We all agree that we felt exhausted)
By lunchtime, we gathered around a giant sculpture of a head and slowly ate our lunch, relaxing by the trees and in the breeze. After lunch we still had plenty of snacks including Miss Hudson’s M&S crisps!
We were all sad when the bike ride was over and we had to say good-bye to Kielder. Call us mad, but it was an amazing trip and we thoroughly enjoyed the day.
