Last night we had torrential rain into the early hours of the morning and when we rose although it was not raing it was COLD VERY COLD like in the low fifties. So setting off in all my 'not expecting to ever have to wear' cold weather gear we had the relatively easy cycle of just 33 miles to Elk Garden Church hostel. However the sting in the tail was an effing great big 4 mile hill at the end which was on a par with anything you might find in the Alps! As usual Ellen demonstrated her 'Canadian Iron Lady' ascending prowess and glided off up said mountain although she was hampered by cold hands for part of the day.
