40mile ride on Moulton into England and The South Hams, and into Plymouth today.
My idea was to call in at The Union Rooms in Plymouth, like wot I've done many times.
Lean the bike up against the glass windows and go inside for a couple of beer before taking the train back to Gunnislake.

You can sit inside and eat and drink, and keep an eye on your bike at the same time. You can also use the Wetherspoon app to order, so you don't have to even go to the bar.
This was Moulton yesterday afternoon outside sheltered from the incessant English rain.
I'd taken my saddle bag in with me as well as my Garmin Montana. The only door of the three that's used, is well off the shot to to left.
Trouble is ....................
The garden gates on the road were locked shut and as I wasn't able to take Moulton in through the frond doors, up the staircase, through the bar, along past all the tables, and into the garden ............... and back after leaving, I decided to forget it.
No probs, I'll ride down to Porters on Looe Street where there's a garden, but the place is closed and being refurbished - nothing to do with The Virus ............... so I went up Looe Street to The Minerva ............ the oldest pub in Plymouth.
The Minerva Inn is Plymouth’s oldest serving public house, circa 1540.
Trouble is, there's no garden, and nowhere to lean a bike up outside in a secure environment, but I went inside and asked nicely if I could bring a bike inside.
No probs whatsoever, and I wheeled Moulton in and into the back room, then bought a beer and a packet of salted peanuts whilst in the bar with my bike! https://sites.google.com/site/theminervaplymouth//home
