Barb and I met in London – she flying from Turin, me from John O’Groats – she told me to be at platform 9 3/4 at Kingscross station – once we made it to the other side we went to a place called Tewin in Welwyn Garden city where we met an old friend of mine from a past cycling trip in Italy – Andrew Bywater – and his wife Judy.
Today Andrew and Judy took us into London for a sightseeing tour – we trained it into the city , had a great scenic boat trip on the Thames – down to the Tower bridge. A great day that finished off at a top Italian restaurant near Regent street .
Andrew is a guy after my own heart – he has a similarly well equipped bike area at his place with lots of stuff. He very kindly kitted me fully with clothes , bib shorts
, shoes, the bike and I had my last great ride in the narrow county lanes of outer London with Andrew and a couple of his mates. A wonderful 80 Kms. My bike and kit is still in transit from LeJog.
