Back on the bikes – a day trip along the Thames Cycle Path

As we move into 2011 and start our countdown to cycling round South America for a year, it is good to look back at the trips of 2010 including Dunwich Dynamo, the Coast to Coast and our 600 mile trip along the North Sea Cycle Route to Denmark.

“We’ll get a big group together and cycle to Holland. It’s flat on the continent and easy riding. It’ll be loads of fun. We’ll stop lots for food and beer, and we’ll have a rest day in Bruges. Go on, you’ll love it.” The story of how I got into cycle touring.
