As the others have mentioned...
After the visit to the Cathedral, we decided that a bike ride was in order! So, all except Cody – who was distracted by an Ice Cold Beverage, went
off to the Cycle-Hire shop for some bikes.
They have some wonderful contraptions in there, from Tandems, a Tridem, Quadracycles and even an 8-seater conference bike where all of the cyclists
face one another!!
But we decided to stick to traditional bicycles for our adventure and after a short wait in the queue, we were Sorted!
Our destination was “Indian Rock” a large rock-face on the west of the Island which has been painted to look like a native American “Indian”.
We had driven past it on our quick-tour of the Island on Friday night, and Jane had picked up on some energies there that she wanted to investigate
further! The other girls were not in the least put off by the fact it was less than a mile from Fintry Bay Tearooms and their legendary selection of
Jane took to the bike like a Duck to water, as did Mrs C... and off they went!
Meanwhile, Tsu was trying to figure out how to change gear on her new mount before setting off, but her bike had a fancy twist-grip gear changer which
only works when you are actually pedalling!! So, being the gentleman that I am, I shouted at her!! LOL Just Kidding!!
I talked her through the gears, and in no time at all – she was cycling like a pro!
But, being a minute or two behind the other girls, and with “local” knowledge on my side, we took a sneaky short-cut which actually brought us out
ahead of the other two!! Who, by this time, had stopped at the top of a hill to wait for us.
We managed to get all 4 intrepid cyclists back together again, and off we went. The weather was just glorious, and the route follows the coast all the
way round the Island, so it is VERY flat and easy to pedal.
We reached the Tearooms in no time at all and a celebratory Coffee and cake was in order!
The Carrot cake was dee-lish, and I’m told that the Chocolate Cake and Lemon Meringue were just as good! Next stop Indian Rock...
