Garry McGivern’s Travelsonabike2 YouTube video, Somebody Left The Camera On | France’s Greenways, was posted on his YouTube channel today, the 13th-July-2024. Garry’s been going through and editing the videos he recorded on his last bike ride, ready to post on his YouTube channel. While editing, he’s found a few cases where he’s left the camera running; this is the first one.

Garry’s in France on the second full day of his latest tour. He’s cycling to the Netherlands and is already getting forgetful. It’s fairly early in the day, and Garry hasn’t been on the road long. So maybe his medication hasn’t kicked in yet! If you like or want to look at some of France’s many Greenways and cycle routes. This video is for you.

You can watch the video below or on Garry’s YouTube channel. But honestly, it won’t be any more enjoyable wherever you watch the video! You can also subscribe to his channel. You’ll then be amongst the first to know when Garry releases a new video.

Travelsonabike2 England This Day 12th-July-2018

Bicycle Touring This Day 12th-July-2018 A road with a large field and buildings in the background

This week’s Travelsonabike2 bicycle touring on this day post comes from England on the 12th-July-2018. I’m in the UK in a lot of pain and taking a huge amount of painkillers just to get through the day. But I was determined to still get away on my bike. Fifteen days later, I was on a ventilator in intensive care with sepsis.

Thursday 12th July 2018. Bognor Regis to Brockenhurst. 63 miles.

I’d decided on Monday that I was going to cycle to Paris. So, Tuesday morning, I got up at 3 am and by 3.30, I was off to Newhaven to catch the 9 o’clock ferry to Dieppe. But after about 10 miles, I was in too much pain and thought it was probably best not to go. So I turned around and headed back home.

Just as well, I did go home. A: I didn’t have enough painkillers with me. B: I remembered how much I struggled on my last tour. C: I’d forgotten England were playing in the semi-final of the World Cup, which I wanted to watch. And finally, D; the ferry I was aiming to get got cancelled. The loading and unloading ramp had broken down.

After returning home, I stocked up on painkillers watched England lose to Croatia (even though we played really well). And decided to still go away but stay in England and head down to the New Forest instead.

I’ve upped my medication and am now taking the stronger tablets, the ones that have some nasty side effects; you’re also not meant to drink with them. Touch wood, I’ve not had any side effects so far, apart from feeling a little lightheaded. And they have eased the pain a bit.

It was a nice ride down to the New Forest, albeit a bit hard going and painful at times, especially going uphill; that really hurt. I’m not too sure where I’m going tomorrow; it’ll depend on whether or not I’m in pain.

Chorizo Hash YouTube Video

Food on a plate with a bowl and pans

Campsite cooking, Garry McGivern’s Chorizo and Potato Hash YouTube video. Garry’s camping on the Isle of Wight for a few days, cooking some of his favourite one-pot campsite meals. They are the same meals Garry cooks at home. It’s just a little more challenging cooking in a tent on a tiny camping stove.

Bear in mind when watching the video that it’s not made in the comfort of a proper kitchen. It’s recorded live in the field. Or rather in Garry’s tent in the New Forest. And as Garry has always said, just because you’re camping, it doesn’t mean you can’t eat well. It just takes a little more effort.

You can watch the video below or on Garry’s YouTube channel. But honestly, it won’t be any more enjoyable wherever you watch the video! You can also subscribe to his channel. You’ll then be amongst the first to know when Garry releases a new video.
