Aber Cycle Fest, Hotdogs on the Beach and a Xmas Dinner

Friday was a busy one for us as usual. A 75 minute, fairly tough turbo trainer session first thing for me (after an hour or so of work).

Another packed weekend for us with plenty to do, both recreationally and in the garden. It turned out quite productive though.
