The Plan for 2019

Way back in the depths of winter I decided I'd do a tour down to the far south west of England. I've done this a few times in the past, but realised it's been 12 years since the last time! That's too long and needs to be changed!

I've always taken a fairly direct route - sort of London, Bristol then onwards. This time I shall head south right from the start until I hit the coast. Then I shall ride all the way to Cornwall for the most part following NCN2. Of course, knowing what the NCN routes can be like, I will be deviating from this quite a bit. On the way back I shall follow a more inland route.

My route will look something like this:

The good thing about going along the south coast is that there are lots of ferries! And we all know ferries are good. I've checked most of them and one that is out of action just when I want to use it is the Sandbanks to Studland ferry. This is most annoying as I haven't been on that one for a long time and it also cuts out a chunk I don't really want to do. Oh well, not much I can do about it unless I can find a friendly boat owner to take me across!

So that's the rough plan. I'm not entirely sure how much of Cornwall I'll do. I've done much of it in the past but I think I'll definitely do Lizard Point rather than Land's End as I've been to the latter plenty of times and never the former. The Lizard is also the most southerly point of the UK mainland, so the weather is bound to be good!

Well done, Rob. There is a reason why the roads in Gravesend are all designed to make it easy to get away from the town! Why no photo of your dinner?

There is a dinner photo now. It took ages to upload as intetwebs is a bit hit and miss here. Not sure why you're commenting under this article rather than the one you're referring to though!

You could visit my sister in Angmering! I’m sure she’ll be thrilled!
