Most miles (84.79) walked in a week!

WOW! Go me, that’s me just walked 84.79 miles in a single week! Which has recorded using a GPS watch and not worked out using steps! The most miles, I think I’ve ever done a single week!

During the week, I walked the whole of Grantham Canal and back again! Also made a start walking the Leicester Line of the Grand Union Canal.




I’ve now walked the following canals

I’ve walked the full length of the following canals:-

Mini railway station tour by bike, 62.43 miles

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!!
