London to Dover day2

A great day for biking with a nice breeze behind me most of the way. Managed to do 103miles. Which is probably first time since I was 18!

Managed to do a nice circular tour from Tower Bridge to Greenwich 🙁 plus discovered the Medway tunnel is not for cyclists! Both events leading to quite a few extra miles and time.

Following the GPS track on the Garmin is proving tedious especially on dual carriageways when it’s impossible to do a u turn! The unit seems to take about 50 yards to let you know it’s the wrong way ;-( should ne ok on French minor roads though.

Now on boat to Calais! Hopefully can find a room for tonight!

we made it London in grand style! Only a couplle of small hiccups.first one was having to walk through mud AAddenbrookes hospital as the cycleway wsn’t quite finished 🙁

Then I fell off a couple of times when I forgot my right foot was still clipped in 🙁

The day was longer than planned because we decided to cycle on the canal towpaths in London – not a good idea on a sunny day in Camden!

Plus a couple of miles in wriong direction near Holland Park.

Statistics for day are 72.4miles in 7hr 19min plus2hr 21min stopped time. So quite acceptable for first day.
