The Pirate is planning to run a cyclo cross in about a year's time, near our village.
Unfortunately one can no longer include running water, so a crossing of the Dyrock Burn is out of the question!

But there is plenty of choice, and two willing will be his Birthday Cyclo Cross...ok, I know his birthday is in July, but you don't ride these in the Summer!!

we walked a few possible routes before lunch, then afterwards walked to the village shop for coffee and a paper. 

There were still patches of driven slush on the road as we walked home and above us a stunt plane practised lazy loops. 
The clouds gradually came over, giving us a warmer night than we had feared..just decidedly chilly instead of below freezing.
