I had been intending to just settle in for the day, maybe do a bit of a local hike and then see the sights the following day but seeing the time I realised that it was more than feasible to get started today. As an added bonus this guy would take me on his bike greatly reducing the cost (Which admittedly was still a sizeable £15). For his safety he wore what looked like a hard hat made out ...
