Not Another Wrong Turn!

Today, I bestowed upon the blue raincoat, the... Continue Reading →

The only bike storage we were offered at our hotel was an outdoor, public bike rack, some distance from the hotel and with bike racks that... Continue Reading →

Monuments, Majesty and Milestones

Off to London we go! The sun shone once again this morning for our ride into the big city. I psyched myself up for a busy ride and it was indeed, just that.
