So, yesterday I found myself in the middle of nowhere, down a tiny lane with both mirrors of the Bike Adventures mini-bus buried in the hedgerows. Nothing odd about that, the poor old bus spends much if its life trying to squeeze down such lanes, except it was within 3 miles of the M25!!
New for 2016 is our Circumnavigation of London which tracks the dreaded M25 but might as well be in another galaxy. The ‘Green Belt’ becomes a tangible thing as we follow idyllic country lanes though picture-postcard villages around England’s Home Counties. Yesterday I completed the 2nd half of the reccie, starting in Woking and working my way through Surrey and Kent before taking the little-known Tilbury pedestrian ferry across the Thames and into Essex. It really is quite astonishing that the route encircles a population of more than 10,000,000 people because all I saw was trees!
The trip runs over the first weekend in July and is proving popular so if you would like to join us get in touch soon!
