As a veteran of several of the more leisurely Exodus cycling trips but no more than an occasional cyclist on the mean streets of South London, had I made a foolish decision this time by opting for a tougher grading than on any of my previous trips?

Madeira - Not a Piece of Cake

To me, any mention of Madeira always meant either a large slab of cake to be enjoyed with a cup of Earl Grey or - more likely - a dash of fortified wine to be added to a dollop of crème fraiche and wholegrain mustard (try it!) to make an excellent sauce, maybe to accompany some pork tenderloin. It didn’t occur to me that as a spring break, Madeira would be just what the doctor ordered (no cake or rich sauces I’m afraid).
