Got Strava? Please give the following rides a kudos! They are ones, from when I did the End to End cycle back in 2009. So back before Strava was even a thing! So uploaded the routes at a much later point….

Just after leaving the village of Glencoe on the fifth day of the End to End cycle

Really need a day out to Hunstanton again!

Long, long overdue to a day out to Hunstanton! Always have so much fun when I go! Here’s a look back to times, I went with Hobbz and Tyler (2010) and myself Nick and Myself (2015 & 2018).

Walked so many canals

I’ve walked so many canals in England over the last number of years! So far done the Erewash Canal, Grand Union Canal (main line), Grantham Canal, Northampton Arm (Grand Union Canal), Nottingham & Beeston Canal, Paddington Arm (Grand Union Canal) and Regent’s Canal.

Think so far, the Grand Union Canal (main line) has been my favourite! Mainly because, I can say I’ve walked the whole way from London to Birmingham.

Now in the process of walking the Kennet and Avon Canal and Leicester Line (Grand Union Canal).

The map below, shows all the canals and other walks, I’ve done since 6th October 2016. When I got my Garmin Vivoactive HR GPS smart watch.
