Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in England on Friday, 13th-July-2018. Brockenhurst to Brighstone. 22 miles. I saw this morning that there had been a weather warning put out for thunder, lightning and heavy rain! That’s good. I thought I’d stay here and test this new tent out to see if it leaks!
But after looking more closely at the weather, I found out the bad weather was north of here. It only said nearby!
After finding that out, I decided to move on! After all, they were expecting another 300 people to arrive here tonight!
I was a bit undecided about where to go once I’d left the campsite. I wanted to head down to Swanage but didn’t think I could cope with all the hills! So I opted for the Isle of Wight instead, just for a change!
Cycling today was pretty easy, and I’ve not really had any pain. It seems to be hurting more now I’ve stopped! But that could be down to the fact I’m due more tablets!
Very leisurely ride today. I didn’t leave until gone 10 o’clock and was here at Brighstone by 3 o’clock! And that included getting the ferry!
Camped right on the cliff edge tonight, but luckily, there’s a fence to stop me from rolling off in the night! I just hope there’s no cliff erosion!
