half way to reading

today, i have been mostly cycling.

Four of there are, the regular Sunday morning crew, and we're Bristol to Reading via the Kennet and Avon canal. Bed and Breakfast in the Royal Oak in Pewsey.

It's quite a long way from Bristol to Reading - about a 100 miles, but we're hard men, we are, and there's talk of pressing on tomorrow all the way to Windsor.

Well this morning there was talk, no much after the ascent of Caen Hill Locks.

It's hungry work, cycling - we had breakfast in Reading (train stop) lunch in Avonbridge, tea in a garden centre in woodbridge and, delightfully, our B&B is 300m from an Indian Restaurant, so we're all sorted for dinner (1)

Unaccountably we failed to stop for elevenses.
