Billie no mates

A Morning cycle ride into the heart of the old Potteries via the Trent and Mersey canals, passing the dilapidated factories and warehouses. Meandering round the Harecastle tunnel through a Park that used to be a colliery and into Kidsgrove, follow the canal and B roads to Congleton and into Cheshire. A quiet warm days ride without my cycling buddies and only the locals and wildlife to converse with.

Mr Kelly Where are you!!!!!!!!!!!

My good friend Dr Parker and I are having a thoughtful moment, a boiled sweet and a rest from our training run in the lovely village of Cheswindine, contemplating where our other good friend Mr Kelly is. Can you spot him in this video?

Eccleshaw, Norbury Junction and Return

First day of spring and a fine cycle ride from Eccleshaw (via Penny van) around the long way to Norbury Junction for an Eccles cake and tea. Followed by a gentle cycle ride back to Eccleshaw.

A Fine Circular Route

22 miles, about 1 hour 45 minutes excluding tea stops.

We even took some video ...

Slower than Mike?

My backs a lot better now and have been out for modest 8 mileish spins last two days before getting back into 16 per day commutes next week. If I get a recurrence and have to pull out you could get in Robot Boy. He climbs even slower than me...
