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.

September 9 - Southampton to Cowes Pedal...pedal...pedal... “We’re going the wrong way, we should have gone down that street.” Pedal…pedal…pedal… “Stop. Turn around.” Pedal…pedal…pedal… "Seriously!
