Travelsonabike2 England Friday 21st-June-2024

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is bicycle touring in England on Friday, the 21st-June-2024. Salisbury to Brockenhurst. 63 miles. Sixty-three miles; I’d be impressed if it was that many miles. It was probably more like 25/30 today. I’d done more miles whilst in Salisbury than I thought.

I was going to go home today, but in what can only be described as a fit of madness. I’ve come down to the New Forest. On a weekend, what was I thinking? It’s a nightmare in the New Forest at a weekend. It just gets so busy. I might live to regret this decision!

One of the reasons for coming to the New Forest was to cycle somewhere different, not the destination but the route to get here. I entered the new forest near Furzley. And what a great route it was. Quiet, narrow lanes. That was until I went under the M27. I was then on the A337, which was rather busy. But I was only on it for four miles.

Where Next

I’m not too sure how long I’m going to stay in the New Forest; we’ll see what happens tonight. But I’ve got a bit of a dilemma now. I’ve done just over 900 miles on this tour and would really like to get over the 1000 mark. But the ride home is only about 65 miles. I could stay down here and go for a ride somewhere tomorrow, or I could head down to Swanage. I’ve not been down there so far this year. Or I could just go home and forget about getting over the 1000-mile mark. I’m not really that fussed. I’ll think about it overnight.
