Cycle Touring England Wednesday 5th-April-2017

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in England on Wednesday, 5th-April-2017. Bognor to Wareham. 78 miles. Decided, seeing as I didn’t have any more work booked in this week, I’d make the most of the nice weather and get away! I was trying to go at the weekend but I had a problem with my email and had to wait for a phone call from BT, which still didn’t resolve the issue. I had to wait for another call on Tuesday evening, which, thankfully, this time, sorted it out!

It’s Spring

I love this time of year. The days are getting longer, the temperatures going up, and all the campsites are starting to open.

It seemed like a really long day today, which was mainly because of the route I took, which was via the Isle of Wight. You waste 90 minutes sitting on ferries, and now that the Yarmouth to Lymington ferry is only hourly, it’s even worse. Especially when you just miss one, as I did!

Apart from taking so long to get here, it’s been a really lovely spring day, and the sun has shone all day.

  1. I’m fed up with the Isle of Wight – I’m gonna look up some of your French tours. I went up to London but I didn’t fancy those Santander hire bikes

    1. The Boris bikes or rather the Santander bikes are brilliant, you should try them! I definitely try and get to France this year at some point.

  2. Hi Spike. I am glad you made it to Wareham. I hope you are able to sleep well and the weather stsys good again tomorrow for you. x
