Saturday 7 March. Maidstone to London then train to Bognor. 42 miles.

After yesterday’s day of indecision I was pretty good today and made my mind up first thing and actually stuck to it! A lot of it was down to the wind direction as I was um’ing and are’ing as to whether to cycle home but as it was a fairly stiff south westerly which I would have been riding straight into I decided to give it a miss I seem to be struggling enough as it is! So I decided to cycle to London and get the train home seeing as I have to be home on Monday anyway. The ride into London for the most part was fairly good I followed the A20 which although it went over a rather big climb over the north downs it was still good, well upto the point when it turned into 3 lane highway with no hard shoulder! It was totally my own fault as I’d driven along the road so many times in the past and also I could see on the map that it was dual carriageway classed as a motorway I was just hoping that it wasn’t going to be! Surprisingly it was! After about three miles I was able to come off and find the cycle route into London. There’s always a good feel about London and I always enjoy going there, after a brief ride around I went to London Victoria and caught a train home. I’m hoping to continue this ride next week (and maybe get a few more miles in, this week’s effort has been pretty feeble) after my hydrotherapy appointment on Monday, depends how I feel, after last week’s appointment I didn’t feel too good at all, still you know what they say “no pain no gain”
