That sure was a great cycle! Did 62.43 miles, so making it the second longest cycle of the year so far! It could well be my favourite cycle, of 2018! Since I cycled along part of the  Grantham Canal. Then stopped off at Bottesford, to get some food, and also check out it’s railway station!

Then it was off to Elton and Orston railway station, which is one of the least used stations in the UK. It only gets two services a day. One to Nottingham at 6:25am and other service to Skegness at 5.10pm. There is no Sunday service. A normal service operates on most bank holidays.

Then it was back home passing Belvoir Castle! So over all, a great cycle!!

My life is so crap right now! Nothing is going right, was hoping the whole, house thing would have been sorted by now. But it’s not been, so come Monday, I am going to be homeless.

Cycling is, about the only thing, stopping me, from having a break down!

Don’t even ask, me some of the things, I’ve been Googling the last number of nights… But think, you can guess!!

That sure was a great 36.33 mile cycle, which is of course the longest cycle of the month! I do really need to try getting a 50 or 60 mile cycle in, before the month is out…

That’s me just done the first half century ride of 2018! So well pleased, I ended up doing 52.08 miles! Let’s just hope, it’s the first of many this year and that I can also get in a full century ride, at some point this year…
