Swapped the paddles for the bike, and went for a wee dander. Southern Scotland is one of the best areas in the country for touring on the bike, with quiet roads, plentiful cafes, and numerous pubs. Like anywhere else this winter, the roads have suffered from the weather, and there is the odd pothole to watch out for and grit on the road. But touring about on the back roads is one of the more relaxing ways to see the countrside these days.
