I will be taking a train from Aberdeen to Penzance (via London) on 22 May, with my bicycle. Between now and then, I need to get fit enough to be able to bicycle back. I will be away (working) for several of the weeks between now and then. Training needs to include getting used to a heavier bicycle – while I will not be camping (I’ll be staying with friends/B&Bs/hotels) I will need to take clean clothes and other items. My brother Guy has been kind enough to lend me his panniers and handlebar bag that he used in his ride from Lands End to John O’Groats a few summers back. These seem adequate to carry my things, but the bike definitely handles differently with these strapped on.

In May/June 2019, I am cycling the length on Britain, visiting all the places that I have lived and a few friends along the way. This is a charity ride aimed to raise funds for Alzheimer's Research UK and the Spinal Injuries Association. I will also have fun looking for various features along the way and exploring the meaning of memory View all posts by Mark on a bike
