The Story So Far

All with Nhsy the NHS Lionheart, Scally and friends.

Wednesday 3rd June

 
Cold, damp, stormy clouds….complete contrast to the previous last couple of weeks.
These old boats seem to sum up the change in weather languishing on the banks of the River Humber looking totally miserable – shipwrecked!

Thursday 4th June

Another very early morning trip to town centre to say ‘Good Morning’ to Queen Victoria

and visit central bus station. Great messages of support for our NHS are discovered all over on my travels.
 
Hull Bus
 

Friday 5th June

 
Early morning wet weather, very wet. It eventually cleared but I, and my cuddly friend, Nhsy – on my back- were quite soggy!
My journeys took me to Northumberland Avenue and a great  ‘history wall’ depicting a  street ‘Peace Party’ celebrating the end of
World War 1.

First World War Write Up
 
So much history in and around out great city. Cycling gives you more opportunities to enjoy the historic gems in our streets.
 

Saturday 6th June

 
More heavy rain….puddles becoming longer and wider as I cycle along the country roads.

Only 8 miles today….but each mile adds up!
 
Saturday was also D Day. – 6th June, 1944. I enclose this picture of a poppy again (shown previously in another diary entry) as a mark of respect to all those involved with D Day,1944.
We Will Remember Them.

Sunday 7th June

 
Poor weather again. Reached Hedon Church by 6.20 am.
 
Sutton Church
 
Some of the country lanes I use are very lonely, very long, and now very, very, waterlogged!!!

Another varied and interesting week. Complete contrast in the weather but even in the wettest, coldest of days our spirits remain high as the total mileage now reaches 2,097.
I covered 80 miles this week which is a slight drop on my usual weekly average. No worries, my old legs will keep pedalling!!…Our chosen charities and the NHS need as much support as we can give.
