Travelsonabike2 England This Day 16th-February-2019

This week’s Travelsonabike2 bicycle touring on this day post comes from England on the 16th-February-2019, and this is my first time away on my bike since recovering from sepsis the year before.

Saturday, 16th February 2019. Salisbury to Bognor Regis. 78 miles.

I didn’t get very far today before I suffered yet another puncture. I’d only gone about 2 miles. I’ll order a new tyre first thing tomorrow morning. I’m too tired tonight.

It’s been a good ride today. It’s felt like I’ve been going downhill all day, which, if you look at a map, it is: Salisbury is above Bognor Regis, right?!?

I’ve been a good boy today and have stuck to cycle routes all day, route 24, Salisbury to Eastleigh. From Eastleigh, route 23 took me to Southampton, which followed the river Itchen. It was then the familiar route 2 Southampton to Bognor Regis. I even went on the ‘Pink Ferry” from Hamble to Warsash, and the tide was out. Thankfully, I never slipped over on the slippery stones getting off the ferry. That might not have ended too well.

It’s been a good few days away, getting around and seeing some of my regular haunts. I’ve really enjoyed myself. And I hope to do a few more trips before I have to go back into hospital to have this hip replaced permanently.
