Sunday 29th August
We had a good camp last night and everyone slept well. After a breakfast of porridge and coffee we hit the road where we headed for Guildford to get Glen another tyre. He’s been nothing but trouble! Really high maintenance! We arrived in Guildford about 9am but the cycle shop did not open till 10am so we all had a full English breakfast. Another wait for Glen: it’s all being noted.
Finally we got going following wonderful trails and canal towpaths. Really great riding. We had some light refreshments in the Rose and Crown in Sandhurst and then carried on through the urban mess of Reading. It was pretty good cycling. Then got on Kennet and Avon canal, which we’ve ridden beside before, and we knew exactly where we where heading; “The Rowbarge”.
