Well I’d like to say that it’s good to be back in England, but it’s not!
Busy roads, with drivers that don’t have any patience, roads that are full of potholes! And worst of all the rubbish that litters the countryside is unbelievable! What’s the matter with people, do they not care anymore! I’m ashamed to call this country home!
Well that’s the rant over with!
It was very cold this morning, in fact it’s not warmed up all day, I even had to get my gloves and fleece out!
It wasn’t a particularly pleasant ride to start with, not until I reached Chelmsford, then things seemed to improve. The roads improved and so did the drivers! There was still rubbish everywhere though!
Cycling into London was really nice. By surprise I found a Greenway which took me all the way to the queen Elizabeth Olympic park.
I would have liked to cycle home tomorrow, but to find somewhere to stay in London tonight at short notice is ridiculously expensive!
So I took the easier and cheaper option by getting the train! Besides it not a particularly nice ride home from London anyway!
All in all it’s been a very enjoyable tour, and my fitness seems to have returned to pre-sepsis levels. It’s just a shame that I’ve now got to go back into hospital! But then now is obviously the right time, to give me the best chance of a speedy recovery!
Total miles of both legs of this tour 1766.
