CycleOut London
A big thank you to Gavin for organising this trip. It was an excellent weekend.
The cycle routes were scenic and very interesting - along the coastal path, a dodgy ferry trip, tea and cheesecake en-route to die for, lunch to only dream of and great cycling buddies. The weather was perfect - lots of sunshine but not hot.
The youth hostel was surprisingly good - maybe our expectations were so low. Very clean, plenty of hot water - the showers I had were always hot and eco-friendly at the same time.
The food, especially the coq-au-vin, was very good indeed, Gavin's recipe but a group effort to pull it off - plenty of vin and coq to go round. Not sure about anyone else but I was stuffed.
Jim & Pete's full English breakfast was just what the team needed before setting out each morning - can't beat a good thick sausage in the morning.
All in all, the best cycling trip yet - but then this is my first - no longer a cycling trip virgin.
Thanks again guys.
