Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in England on Thursday, 1st-August-2019. Hockley Heath to Oxford. 61 Miles. Last night’s campsite was a bit of a ripoff! A premium price, with no showers, just one toilet and a cold tap! But hey, I was just grateful to be able to pitch my tent somewhere! And it was nice and peaceful, unsurprisingly!
Nice early finish today, I was all set up in camp by 2.30!
I suppose it did help being on the road nice and early. Although I have been playing the tourist a bit!
First of all in Stratford on Avon, then Banbury and finally Oxford.
I like Stratford, I think it’s a lovely town, with plenty of history and loads to see, and do if your stopping!
Banbury is also a pleasant town, although not as nice as Stratford!
And finally Oxford, once again a great place to visit!
Met a fellow cyclist along the road today, although I think he was more of a hobo! He liked to camp wild, and was proud that he hadn’t washed for, it was either three weeks or three months! Either way, it’s not very good, but he was pleasant enough and nice to talk to.
