OKEHAMPTON: CYCLING WITH DEER
It has hardly stopped raining this week until today. This is not a good advert for the West Country but previously we had a long spell of fine weather. Today's ride was over Dartmoor to Okehampton and included a muddy field and off road track, so it was fun.
Here is another fun bit. I came face to face with a deer. The animal ran just in front of me for 200 metres then hopped into the hedge and ran with me for another 200 metres. The speed of a deer is 15mph. Here is a gypsy horse, part Welsh cob, part much else according to the owner. What a great looking animal!
