VeloViewer Infographic : 19 November 2022 @veloviewer

Going by my VeloViewer Infographic, I’ve had 323 active days so far in 2022! Which means, I’ve done at least one cycle or walk each day so far this year!

That’s me now done a total distance of 3,000 miles this year. Which is made up 1,764 miles of cycling and 1,236 miles of walking!!

Where it says running… That’s my walking data!

Walking The Dales Way in 2023!

Next year, Bugsy, Mark G (house mate) and myself will be walking The Dales Way! It will be my biggest adventure, since doing the End to End cycle back in 2009!

The Dales Way runs for 80 miles from Ilkley in West Yorkshire to Bowness-on-Windermere in Cumbria. We will be doing the whole walk in one go! Not like other long walks, that I’ve done, which have been done over weeks, months and some even years!

In the next week, or so, we’re going to do a test day. Doing one of link routes. We have picked the Harrogate one, which covers a distance of 16.5 miles!

So looking forward to this, BIG adventure with him!!

Bugsy’s walking map – 01/11/2022 to 12/11/2022

We are only 12 days into November and look at all places Bugsy has walked already!

All going well before the month is out, will do at least another 2 or 3 days of the Leicestershire Round… Plus doing a test day of The Dales Way. Just to double check that Bugsy and myself can do the whole route, in one go next year…

Love East Midlands Parkway railway station

Love East Midlands Parkway railway station. Can’t think of other railway station in the UK, with a power power station, right behind it!

At the time of writing this (25 October 2022), it’s one of only three coal-fired power stations left in the UK, and is scheduled to close in September 2024.
