Funny sign just before Tintagel. As it turns out, not such a funny morning. Followed the ctc route along the coast. Bad plan. 30 percent slopes do not make for good cycling, especially when they’ve just resurfaced the road. Lots of walking and pushing, boo. It’s a rubbish route really. Pretty, but not for cycling. Made it to Bude for a late lunch, and i’m really hoping the next 30 miles inland are all downhill. Kinda wish i’d printed out the elevation profiles so i’d know what is coming.
