Separately to my evening ride, this afternoon I went up to the UEA to meet some wellbeing dogs. My friend Sarah runs Tom & Toto Pet Care, which provides UEA students with access to dogs weekly to aid their mental health and wellbeing.

Having experienced these wonderful doggies first-hand, I can vouch for their effectiveness; I certainly left the campus in extremely high spirits!

This evening, Katie drove me up to Mundesley and I ticked off a number of villages in north-east Norfolk. My route planner sent me down a bloody cart track on private land, and my front light fell off without me noticing because it was so bumpy (and because I hadn’t fixed it on properly). I then went all the way back down the cart track to find it, and found it right near the start. Reattached it, then had to go down the cart track for a third time!

Then I went wrong and inadvertently went to Swafield, which wasn’t on my list. I definitely need a better navigation system; any recommendations?

Those mishaps aside, it was another really pleasant ride; not too hilly, sunny, not too windy and a perfect temperature for riding.

Before I go, should we have some more doggos? Of course we should.
