Hooray, the clouds evaporated and so I leapt on my bike and travelled partly on the North Cheshire route of the Cheshire Cycle way to reach Latchford in Warrington. After a cup of tea and peanut butter sandwich I pushed a mower around my in-laws’ lawn, swallowed another mug of tea and headed back before the school run. A round trip of 60 miles with only a few short hills such as Dunham, Frodsham and Preston Brook. The only worrying section is around Daresbury just south of Warrington. Workmen are widening a roundabout. it looks as if there maybe a cycle lane for it too, but currently all incoming traffic are funnelled into one lane – so I shared it with HUGE lorries, who sometimes cut back in too soon. I always brake when something carrying a supermarket overtakes me – let them go!
The illustrated booklet arrived today about my writers’ week in Bellapais, Northern Cyprus. Beautiful photographs and great short stories as well as information. Any writer planning to visit Northern Cyprus, especially in the lovely Kyrenia area should buy this cheap book
