Travelsonabike2 England Tuesday 22nd-October-2019

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in England on Tuesday, 22nd-October-2019. Harwich to Bognor Regis. 89 Miles. 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 litter the countryside is unbelievable! What’s the matter with people? Do they not care anymore? I’m ashamed to call this country home!

There’s litter wherever you look

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, its 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.

  1. Well done! If there were a club for world cyclists, no one would turn up. Rubbish! you’d think the Isle of Wight would be better. People are too lazy to put their refuse out on the kerbside. Those green routes look promising. Here’s till the next time. Fantastic mileage.

    1. Cheers Malcolm, thanks for all your comments.
      Rubbish is everywhere, nobody has any pride!
      Why they don’t let people doing community service, pick the litter up as they used to!
      Something against their human rights! What a load of rubbish, if you’ll pardon the pun!
