A long-distance road cycle (just short of 1000km) in summer 2010. Via the Cornish Riviera, the Exmoor Coast and the Dorset Coast. This was more successful than my Thurso to London cycle, in that we completed all the legs in order, and without needing an extra day. Here’s my writeup – although I didn’t say very much this time.
