The story of the restoration of a 1950s classic bicycle for a Land's End – John O'Groats charity ride in aid of Alzheimer's Society
Went for a training ride from just south of Colchester to Anglesey Abbey, near Cambridge. I used Cyclestreets to plan the route – it should have been 52 miles. I had NCN maps and a GPS thingummy with me. What could possibly go wrong?
But cyclestreets doesn’t generate very simple routes and I always get lost in Colchester – the wretched place is full of complicated little roundabouts. Also, the horrible A12 has very few places for crossing on a bike. Somehow, rather than crossing close to Colchester, I missed the route and ended up crossing miles to the West. Error piled upon error and I ended up covering 75 miles. Just look at the crazy track I followed:
