The last leg, back to England

The last leg, back to England

The music on the steel drums weren’t for me.

T’was apple harvest fair in Cranbrook, Kent.

As I rode past on the last leg of my long – just over 17,000 km from London to the Danube Delta and return.

By the time I reached the Fortified Farm Retreat in Deux-Sevres the weather had started to turn cool and damp

Rain and strong winds on the French coast made Calais and the Tunnel the best option for a Chanel Crossing.

Running north past the magnificent cathedrals

Im particular the Notre Dame in Amiens

To the Eurotunnel train and rendezvous with other riders returning from their summer winter tour

Back in London it wasn’t just the weather that was changing

So was the political climate and the response to climate change

Extinction Rebellion Trafalgar Square Occupation

Even the lawyers rebelled for the climate

I have avoided politically related statements in my blog but as I write large tracks of beautiful rare temperate rain forests in New South Wales, Australia are being destroyed in unprecedented bush fires. This is climate change and it can no longer be ignored.

  1. And so it ends! I’ll miss your blogs; I enjoy living vicariously through others. I forgot to ask the other day where you’re off to next. Still plenty of trips left in that book I’d say! Cheers Pauline xx

  2. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be
    just what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers
    to write content for yourself? I wouldn’t mind writing
    a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write about here.
    Again, awesome weblog!
