This will be the last image of Matteo for some time, as he is due imminently to move to near Rimini to work in the family joinery business. Good luck, Matteo.
The full results are here.
With Mike and Sarah and Isabella having headed off to the marginally cooler east coast, my main duty today involved the well-being of Millie. She wasn't all that hungry, but had found a cooler spot under the hedge.
Later, Sue and I pedaled along to Wythenshawe Park to take part in the fourth 'Sizzler' of the summer 5km race season.
A guest announcer gave a speech in honour of Ron Hill, legendary marathon runner, who died recently. There followed a minute's silence. All very respectful, on the day before the 2020 olympics start in Tokyo.
Here's a picture from our Porthmadog trip. Pared y Cefn hir looks like quite a dramatic hill from this viewpoint above Tyddyn mawr, but it's only about 150 mtres higher than where the photo was taken.
The hill tops out at below the 400 metre contour, and is easily climbed from nearby Llynau Cregennen. It has a Fort on its summit ridge.
We must go up it sometime.
[Meanwhile, we hope Dot is ok as her phone was constantly engaged tonight; she was probably sitting on it.]
Today I pedalled off to Marsland Bridge to meet Cary for a ride that I've done before,* albeit by slightly different routes.
