Travelsonabike2 England Sunday 15th-July-2018

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in England on Sunday, 15th-July-2018. Brighstone to Adgestone. 21 miles. It was another late start today. I did toy with the idea of stopping another night, but I thought I would probably get bored! And besides all my neighbours packed up and left, I managed to bore them yesterday then!

I decided to follow the coastal road today, even though I knew it would be tough going!

Harbour

Ventnor harbour

First of all, I had to get up St Catherine’s Point, which was a bit of a climb! And there were loads of “mamils” at the top!

Seafront

I then decided to go down to Ventnor Seafront, which I really didn’t need to! I knew it would be hard going and steep, but I forgot just how steep it was! 25% gradient! That made me sweat a bit!

Old Shanklin

I finished cycling at about 3.30. I could get used to these late starts and early finishes! But only until my hip gets fixed!

  1. Hey that’s the Isle of wight! I-ve done that ride. You did it in a heat wave. Still, it’s a lovely area.
