Travelsonabike2 England Friday 11th-May-2018

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in England on Friday, 11th-May-2018. Adgestone to Bognor Regis. 38 miles. Seeing as there was no rush this morning, I decided to use the phone to navigate a different route from the campsite to the ferry or, rather, the Fastcat. And I certainly did go a different way. It took me way off the beaten track through housing estates and across fields! All good fun!

Once off the island, the ride home was hard going. And what normally takes me about two and a half hours took nearly four! There was a strong headwind, and because my hip was hurting, I stopped at every opportunity!

Despite the struggle home and cycling across fields, it was still an enjoyable day.

But I think now is the time to get this hip sorted; everything is becoming too painful! After all, I was told it would all be done and dusted within 4 months. That was 6 months ago now!

  1. Yeah! Even walking was tough in that wind. Have you done van camping? You could get a smaller bike and ride round the local area.I was on the pink ferry yesterday but I didn’t know what to do on the other side. There were no cafes.

    1. Julie an I go away camping in the car with the bikes on the roof, which is all good fun, but it’s not as good as turning up somewhere with everything on the bike!
      I did wonder what you were going to do after getting the ferry to Warsash! But at least you’ve done it again now.
