Yesterday I went for a short ride in Salisbury. The Destination was the Sculpture Park at Roche Court in Winterslow, which is located 14 km outside Salisbury. I got there by train and then made my way to the park through the little roads of the countryside. The total route was only 30-40km plus another 15 in London, but it was good enough to try out the all the new gear I’ve bought for the bike. Some of them work great, some others not as much.
The park it selfÂ is definitely worth a half a day trip. It has many nice and big sculptures, spread around beautiful countryside.
Today, I managed to cycled up to Alexandra palace, just to check I can cycle a few more uphill kilometers after a full cycling day. So all good!!! =]
George, should you need a partner in the weekends for cycling until you start your journey, I’ll be more than happy to ride along! Also, I could share some tips regarding long distance cycling as I completed my first attempt to it a few weeks ago in France.
