The Story So Far

Week 17


Monday 15th June 2020

I’ve seen lots of great images of thanks to our NHS on my travels…over the last couple of days, for example, a rainbow totem pole in someone’s garden and a NHS Supercar!

The early morning mist, however, just seemed to be thicker as the week progressed.

This is the view across the River Humber in thick fog….no sign of Lincolnshire!

Tuesday 16th June 2020

Last time I visited St Andrew’s Church just outside the village of Paull it was bathed in the beautiful rays of sun rise….Today there was that mystic feel about the area shrouded in the thick morning mist.

Wednesday 17th June 2020

Another long journey before school…at 4.45am I ventured out towards Keyingham Marsh…then onto the Humber Bridge area.
Marsh Lane
Surrounded by grey, grey and more grey!!!
Everywhere just grey, damp mist….I revisited this spot on a bridge somewhere near Keyingham Marsh later in the week on Friday – when it was then bathed in sunshine (See Friday 19th)
Road BridgeThen onto the Humber Bridge….

A disappearing bridge….half lost in the fog!

Return to Keyingham Marsh area ….this time, early morning sunshine. This photo is from exactly the same place as that in Wednesday’s photo ( See Wednesday 17th)…what a difference a couple of days make….From murky to marvellous!

Beautiful English countryside meadows now showing their lovely scenery without being hidden by mist.

Very long journey…early start to revisit Patrington and then on to Patrington Haven for the first time.

The Wolf PackI also reach both sides of the world!……..In one journey we reached out to the East and West of our world. My bicycle’s front and rear wheels are literally in different parts of the world!!
Greenwich SignAs I approached Patrington Haven, I came across this quaint medieval mill…more history hidden away in our beautiful countryside.

Sunday 21st June 2020

Officially the longest day of the year.

What a week! Mist, thick fog, wonderful warm sunshine, pouring rain.

Medal Back CropSunday morning I started Father’s Day with a quick 8 mile sprint in the rain. Refreshing!!
Every journey is different, every journey brings its rewards of something interesting , enlightening….and on many days – challenging!!
Early Morning Road with Bike
Early Morning Road132 miles this week….bringing the total now to 2,332 miles. After today (21st June- the longest day) our days start to become shorter. My early morning starts may mean a return to the dark early starts as I always aim to be at school  for my daily duties…all in a day’s work!

My target of 2,500 miles ( double the original target) is growing closer and closer
