I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
On April 24 I cycled the trail from Winsloe to North Wiltshire turning back when I came to this Snow drift between markers 162-163. Rest of the trail in good condition with a few wet spots from melting snow.
On April 25 I cycled to the Suffolk road, Pics 2 & 3 are near Suffolk and I walked the bike over them.
Last pic is at Royalty Junction, one side is open all the way. Day time high temperature was around 10 both days.
Yesterday I cycled the trail from the Mall to Hampshire. The trail west of the fire school still had a lot of snow along one side of the trail and in a couple it was all the way across the trail.
With the summer bike it is tricky cycling in soft snow.
