Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 Saturday 21st-April-2018 Langton Matravers to Adgestone. 64 miles. I’m feeling tired today. I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night. Last night, all I could hear was some cow (the four-legged type). It was mooing all night. I don’t know what was up with it, whether it was trying to give birth or something. But it definitely sounded distressed. The chances are that I’m not going to get a lot of sleep tonight either. The weather forecast is for thunder and lightning!
Well, just for a change, I’m on the Isle of Wight! Although not at my usual campsite. Apart from liking the Isle of Wight. The other reason for returning is that my hip and leg are so bad at the moment that I don’t have the confidence to go too far. I’m just about okay if nothing goes wrong. But if I had a puncture or had to change a tyre. That would be a major event for me. I find putting the tent up is bad enough. But after saying all that, I’m still enjoying myself.
The ride today was a lot cooler. It’s been cloudy nearly all day, and the last few miles were in the rain! Luckily it stopped just long enough for me to put the tent up, then the heavens just opened!
My eyes are still bad. I’m wondering now if I’ve got conjunctivitis. I’ll get them checked out at the doctor’s tomorrow as I’m heading home for the night before setting off again on Monday.
