A Story Around Every Corner

September 21 - Portsmouth to Prinsted Back on the pedals and we set off out of Portsmouth into the mighty headwind that had decided to follow us after all. The sun was out though, so that was a welcome bonus and we wheeled out along bike lanes, down towards the water. We rode through Portsmouth... Continue Reading →

Return To The Island

September 20 - Portsmouth Guess where we were today? Can you guess? Well, we were back on the Isle of Wight! Why? Because that’s the sort of fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants travellers we are who go here and there on a whim. When we left the Isle of Wight a week or so ago there were still some...

Ferry ‘Cross The…

September 19 - Hythe to Portsmouth It was a ferry day today for sure.

The perfect Go Slow Sunday and the sort of day that was just bliss. We planned a full Go Slow Sunday today, with... Continue Reading →

A Four Legged Bonanza

September 14 - The New Forest It doesn’t get much better than that. A brilliant day, with a fantastic outing on the bikes, through the national park and seeing some animals along the way. Absolutely ripper! I trotted out into the dawn light for a quick run around Lymington. The sun was just coming up... Continue Reading →

When Steve Made Peace With The Weather

September 13 - Newport to Lymington You know it’s a brilliant day when Steve admits that it’s warm. Steve has never bonded with the UK, due mainly to the ongoing disagreement he’s had with British weather. Today though…well, even he had to mellow and call a temporary truce in his feud with the British elements.... Continue Reading →
