On my bike tour through Cornwall and Devon in the south-west of England, this stretch was something special: several kilometres of flat path. Before that it was a lot of ups and downs for two and a half days. And also after that flat stretch, I still had a lot of vertical metres. One way to noticed the amount of exercise came from my feeling of hunger. I had my second breakfast at a cafe in Padstow, first a Cornish breakfast and then someone at the next table had a large slice of lemon meringue pie, which I then also ordered for dessert. Well strengthened, I then left Padstow along the old railway line, followed by a few more metres up and down.
