Gluttons For Punishment

September 25 - Sidmouth to Cirencester We made Sidmouth our pitstop last night. We were there for a reason. We were there for a hill. A hill?? you may ask. Yes, a HILL, I say. We usually spend our time dreading hills and doing our best to avoid them, but this time we came because... Continue Reading →

Romans, Writers and Reflections

September 24 - Chichester to Sidmouth A motoring day today as we visited two interesting places, with a lot of driving in between, which wasn’t interesting at all. So today was really just time spent at a couple of sites and then a whole lot of transit time along a motorway. So…not a whole lot... Continue Reading →

Choofing Between The Chesters

September 23 - Prinsted to Chichester A day on the pedals and then a switch to the van, just in time for the rain to come down. Good timing to be in the sheltered transport. We pedalled to Chichester, then motored to Winchester and back to Chichester, with a day between the “Chesters”. It was... Continue Reading →

Formula 54

September 22 - Prinsted There wasn’t any Formula 1 action today but I did spend some time on a motor racing circuit…doing laps…in the pouring rain…without slicks. Fun! It really was a Go Slow Sunday because we didn’t do much at all, so this will be a very brief report on the day’s doings. I... Continue Reading →

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. We caught not one, not two, but three ferries as we chugged across rivers, in the sunshine, on a leisurely, unhurried day of pedalling. We rode into the quiet morning streets of Hythe, then I performed the morning  routine task of... Continue Reading →

Well, Isn’t That Interesting

September 17 - The New Forest Those words came into my head often today. The things I learned from a village roam. “Well, I didn’t know that,” I would say to myself. “Well, isn’t that interesting.” “Well, fancy that.” It was  a day of history and stories and a wonderful day of finds on the...

A Very Peaceful Pedal

September 16 - The New Forest Another day to explore the New Forest, but a slower day, a quieter day and a day to look for some stories beyond the roaming ponies. We set off on our ride from Brockenhurst again and pedalled into the New Forest National Park, along one of the roads that... Continue Reading →
