We went up to Manchester for the British Cycling Championships as Gareth loves cycling. I actually really enjoyed the day, despite it being a bit long. It's amazing how fast they go. Some of the events were a bit mad - especially the Kieren, where they follow a motorbike which slowly ramps up their speed, then they set off on a race. My pictures are a bit blurred as they went so fast - it was really hard to get any good shots.
I didn't realise how close Manchester was to Derby. We had a lovely drive through the Peaks although it was a bit dark on the way back.
