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!!

Here are some photos from the very first time, I went to London! Way back in November 2002 with my boyfriend of the time… Just to think, I was only 21 or 22 at the time! Like another, life time ago!

Of course, I’ve been back, many, many times since!

WOW! That sure was a great 64.79 mile cycle! Making it by far the longest cycle of the year so far!

But one bad thing did happen during the cycle… That was finding a dead dog in the middle of the road! Which, I of course picked up and took over to the side of the road. Then called the police (on 101 – The police non-emergency number), to let them know! Still really, really unset about it! With being a dog loving, it did really get to me!

At least, I did the right thing, sure most people would just have cycled, drove or walked past. Not me!
