    Cool pics!!

    Is that you in the red and white top TB?

    Your Canadian countryside pictures look similar to my Peak district pics..

    Brakes on full skidding down the grassy 40% slope, lumps and bumps everywhere.
    I'm not going to meet thy maker today.



    I decided to Hit the latter stage of the tour today over in leafy Knutsford, follow the orange/yellow bikes and your on the tour.



    At the finish line, all the barriers and everything else had been moved onto the next stage in Wales for today overnight.

    The "Tour de Cheshire"cycling monument was left..


    Loads of road art on the tour mostly for the benefit of the TV helicopters.



    Some friendly wildlife in Tatton Park, but alas no goats.


    The valley's were full of the aroma of wild garlic and also slightly tainted blue with Bluebells..



    Found a fresh water spring, good job as i'd ran out.



    Two hours to get through all these locks according to a captain today.





    One for the buffalo board.



    Putting in some serious road miles there Bazza, keep up the good work.

    Nine years ago did Europe from Portugal to Istanbul, then flew over the weird countries and continued here. Did Bkk to Luang Prabaung and back and was planning on going south Malaysia, Singapore, blah blah, Australia, but ended up just circling Isaan a few times and then decided to stay here. Which is my weird story about how I ended up here. Continued touring here on school holidays, unfortunately I then discovered motorcycle touring and well the bicycle is dusty now.

    Did all my touring on a Ritchey Ascent Pro comp, totally thrilled with the bicycle even after 29 years....
    The paris breste paris.., the holy grail of long distance timed touring!!!!!

    Thanks, Chitty. No, not me.. my bestie who I share a love for the outdoors with.
    Great pics yourself. That is a lovely area of England. Brings back memories of England when you see the sheep on the hillsides.

    I reckon you are a bit of a Hero bazza.

    When I'm touring in my Pikey Van I hit the road maybe 8.30 9.00 AM and camp up around 3.30 4.00 PM. I do maybe 250 KLM 300 Max.

    How many hours ya fookin riding.

    Ya must be totally fooked at the end of the day eh.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    I did an organised charity cycle ride from Saigon to Siem Reap about 10 years ago. Really enjoyed it despite not enough training. Mainly flat but long and dusty roads through the villages.
    Cycled about 70kms a day. In Cambodia we entered a village and sat outside a shop/shed was a grandmother crying with laughter, we eventually discovered that the source of her amusement was me.
    She could not believe that anyone who could afford to be as fat as me would be stupid enough to ride a bicycle....
