England, Cycling The World 23rd-November-2012

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is in England, cycling around the world on Friday, 23rd-November-2012. Beijing, China, to Gatwick, England, by air. The flight was okay and not very busy at all, so there was plenty of room to spread out. It did seem to be a very long flight, and I only slept for an hour or so, though.

Once we’d landed at Gatwick and I’d got my bike and bags, I went and found a quiet corner to put the bike back together. It was too early to check in to the hotel, and I wanted to go into central London to get some maps for future trips I’m thinking about. Bit of a waste of time as I couldn’t find any of the maps I was looking for!

Had a little sleep in the afternoon, then out in the evening for a few pints and a nice steak. Bed at a normal time; hopefully, I won’t be jet lagged tomorrow for the shortish ride home.

Please Donate

Don’t forget the main reason behind my ride. I want to raise as much money for cancer research charities as possible. After my wife, Josie, died of breast cancer in 2007, aged only 42. Even the smallest donation helps. You can donate to Cancer Research UK or the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on either one to donate. Every little bit helps to rid the world of this cruel disease.
