St Ives to Newquay

When I set off early from St Ives it was a lovely morning, and I stumbled across a McDonalds just outside Hale and stopped for breakfast. Just after that, however, it started to rain, and the rain continued all day. By lunchtime I was soaked and getting cold but was saved by a cycle shop and cafe just before Truro where I tried to find some parts, changed into my full waterproofs, had a cup of tea, and they even let me eat my sandwiches there. Rejuvinated, I continued on through the rain until I finally reached Newquay as the sun set over the sea, having covered 75km today.

I booked into The Zone hostel here and they gave me an en-suite dorm all to myself and even let me take my bike to my room - not bad for 10.
