Spare day today, Back to work next week . Went for a training ride to Bolam lake one of my favourite places. 35 miles 3 hours. I was hoping to complete a 50 mile ride today, but I knew I had other things to do this afternoon, work related. It was a nice and steady ride, I really enjoyed it. Met a lovely mature couple while at the lakes and had a little chat about my plans. Stopped off for a coffee on way back and detoured via Morpeth. All in All a very nice day.
Plans coming together now , but will add those in the relevent section.
Once I get my new broadband up and running (28th Feb) I will add the new pages so it will look more like a web site /blog, With a home page.
One thing ive noticed over the last few months of dreaming, planning , doing something about it is the fantastic touring cycle community there is out there. A massive thanks has to go to TravellingTwo whose web site ive spent hours reading, and the inspirational Shanecycles.com who’s web site is well worth a visit.
This next week is a big one for me as ive got my list and shopping for the remainder of my gear starts then.
I will keep updating and thanks for the support, It means a lot.
Like this site , my cycling adventures are still in the infant stage ,even though I’m not!.
What I hope follows over the next few months and years will keep you and me entertained and enriched.
Like me the site will develop as time passes and I will post as regular as possible as long there is something worth saying!
Why Geordie on a bike! Well im from Newcastle upon Tyne and people from the region are known as Geordies! The name Geordie has a few different origins depending on what you read, but I believe people from Newcastle are called Geordies because of their allegiance to King George during the Jacobite Rebellion. The city of Newcastle shut their gates to the Jacobites and wouldn’t have anything to do with them. (I’m full of information, or full of or something!!).
I have pages planned ,and will add these soon, but for now toot ,toot ‘Im oot.
