Weymouth – but not in a Van

We have a trip to Weymouth planned – but not in a Van. We’re staying at an AirBnB just outside town at what looks like a great location for Weymouth, for Portland Lighthouse, for Chesil Beach and for Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door – we want to do all of those places.

We’ll definitely be walking. We’ll maybe rent bikes for a day. Getting in the sea is a possible – getting on the sea in a kayak or maybe a SUP might be more likely.

There looks like there’s a great walk around Chesil Beach.

We are thinking about walking or cycling to the Portland Bill lighthouse.

Lulworth Cove looks like a must do – and we think that we could swim and kayak – plus walk to see Durdle Door from there.

And we want to see what can we find for vegan eats in Weymouth.

Wild Cycling in the Chilterns

What a great day out this was with John from Wild Cycles.

Wild Cycles promised a full days off road riding with one of their experience British Cycling accredited ride leaders – John in my case – and that’s exactly what they delivered.

We met at a campsite near Wendover Woods in the Chilterns, where I got introduced to John and he took me through our safety briefing, before we headed off for our ride.

There was a bit of easy road riding before we got to our start point in the woods – and then we were straight into it with a downhill on one of the off-road woodland trails.

The day was a full on mix of woodland trails, fast gravel, some great lanes, bridle paths on grass and canal tow paths – with some good gnarly hills thrown in.

Here’s just a small snippet of some of the day – but we did nearly thirty miles in total, so this is just a clip..
