I cycled the half mile to town (although I pushed some of the way up the hill from the house), caught the bus to Banbury and then the train to Derby (only stopping at Birmingham New Street) and then bus to Ashbourne. From there, I reassembled the bike and found the start of the Tissington Trail.
Come Sunday morning, it was back down (rather easier) to Ashbourne and the bus. I had to change at Birmingham but my train from Derby was delayed so I missed my connection but not a big problem. Arriving back at Banbury, there being no Sunday bus service to home, I cycled a quiet route, some of it on Nation Cycle Route 5 and it was very enjoyable, apart from one stretch which took me on an an uphill track through a field followed by a muddy track but this led eventually to a lane. There were a number of hills where I got off and pushed. I cycled the last hour in the dark but I loved it. I was impressed with the Brompton dynamo lights. The route was just over sixteen miles.
Interestingly, and this shows the discrepancy between manufacturers of bags, my backpack, a Gossamer Gear Mariposa, has a capacity in the main compartment of 36 litres; this and the various outside pockets (which I used) make a total of 60 litres. Apart from the food which I had taken and eaten, I managed to decant everything in my 31 litre T Bag so I could actually have taken that instead of the backpack. A case of a quart into a pint pot!
