That was a long day, thirteen hours on the road!
Well I suppose it had to happen, about forty miles from home I got my one and only puncture!
I think that somebody was trying to tell me something, as it happened just outside Greywell, which is where I was thinking of spending tonight, at the Fox and Goose. But I thought being a Friday, they might be booked up! So decided to continue on a little further and find another site.
Bad move! There weren’t any more sites, not until a few miles from home, and by then it wasn’t worth stopping.
It was still a good day despite it being a long one! And a good tour, with 1355 miles covered in total.
I was hoping there might be a letter from the hospital when I got home! Giving me a date to go in for my operation, but alas there isn’t!
Maybe I’ll just have to go away somewhere next week then! No point in sitting around at home, I want to as fit as possible for this operation!

Your bike upside down looks like a stranded whale. Lovely photos of Abingdon. Shame about the bad weather in Ireland. Still, if you can do a final stint of 93 miles, that’s something to be proud of. Now you’re back, have you thought of going to the gym?
It always looks lost without the panniers on!
I think Ireland was pretty good, considering what it was like the last time I was there!
What’s the point in going to a gym, just get outside, I really don’t get them!
Just started following you on you tube. Inspiring stuff want to go further than I do on the commute. 👍
Thanks for the follow Chaz. I’m sure you will at some point!
Did we meet on the canals around Birmingham?
