Cycle Hereford Sunday Spin 18th July 2010. According to the RSPB, bread won't hurt swans but apparently won't do them any good. They prefer potatoes, wheat and veg. This is important because we plan to spend some quality time with swans mid point in our Sunday Spin to Hoarwithy, returning via Capler Hill and Fownhope. Pushing bikes uphill allowed, as always!
