I’ve not done many cycle rides this year so far. No excuses but it was bloody cold and grey today and I didn’t venture out. Somehow, winter cycling is always better when it’s a bright, sunny blue sky day. I can put up with the cold when that’s the case.
Some of my best posts (I think). About cycling holidays and trips and my Trek hybrid bike.
Last weekend, a few friends and I cycled a 72 mile circular route in the New Forest. It was a great cycle ride through some stunning countryside
I’ve cycled the Devon Coast-to-Coast route from Ilfracombe to Plymouth twice now. It’s a great cycling route that winds its way through some stunning and varied scenery, via country lanes, leisure cycling and walking trails, and with a few bridleways thrown in for good measure.
It’s summer (so they say) and I have a long weekend cycling trip coming up in July. The trip is the Devon Coast-to Coast route from Ilfracombe to Plymouth. That’s 200 miles cycling over three days. In preparation for this, I’ve been training over the last month or so. Here’s what I have been doing; I’m not a fitness instructor but this is what works for me.
Here’s a route that I cycled last weekend. It’s a big loop south and west of Horsham using some bridleways and country lanes. There are several pubs on the route including the Blue Ship at The Haven.
