A Rosy Future

Been a while since my last post. Work, poorly relatives and house hunting have been taking an awful lot of my time up. Still cycling to work and back as ever but not much on two wheels just for fun of late. That is about to change very soon though!

Next weekend I am off to cycle the Way of the Roses - a 170 mile coast to coast route from Morecambe to Bridlington. Not only I am cycling it but I will have some company along. My brother in law (BiL) and his two adult sons (student types) are joining me. My brother was going to come as well but work meant he could not get the time off :-(

We are doing it over a leisurely four days. The longest leg will be fifty odd miles and the others will be a lot less. You see they are not really cyclists. My BiL does some short commuting on his Brommie and the two young 'uns don't even own bikes!! I will be on my trusty Santos Travelmaster, the BiL on his Brommie, tallest son on his Dads old road bike and the shorter son - well we haven't finalised that just yet. We are travelling light and staying in B&Bs/hotels.

I'm really looking forward to it. Expect posts and pics from the route.
