Off to South West!

Right then folks, I’m off shortly to complete the South West route of my Cathedral Cycle Tour which will take me all the way to Truro and back.

Here is a rough map of my intended 720 mile route….

On this leg I will be visiting….

Oxford Cathedral (Christ Church)
Salisbury Cathedral
Exeter Cathedral
Truro Cathedral
Wells Cathedral
Bristol Cathedral
Gloucester Cathedral
Hereford Cathedral
Birmingham Cathedral
Coventry Cathedral

I hope to average about 100 miles per day, but it may be less than that when I get into the Devon and Cornwall due to the amount of hills! So, I’m hoping that the trip will take 8-9 days in total.

I will be experimenting with a tracking app on this trip, so that people can get an idea of where I am in real time. Here is the link….

I will do my best to update with pictures as I travel round! If anyone wants to join me for a few miles on my way round then you would be more than welcome.

Off to the seaside!

OK folks, I’m off tomorrow, Thursday 28th of May to ride my South East route, where I will visit 10 of the cathedrals on my list including….

Chelmsford
Rochester
Canterbury
Chichester
Portsmouth
Winchester
Guildford
Southwark
St Paul’s
St Albans

Total distance is about 520 miles and I intend to do this over five days with stops in Rochester, Brighton, Portsmouth and London. Here is a map of my rough route (not exact!)…

Many of the Deans have already agreed to meet me including the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral. I will of course be taking in the Daddy of the cathedrals on this ride – Canterbury. I did write to the Archbishop of Canterbury to ask for a photo, but he’s going to be in China when I visit. Doh! I suppose that’s a fairly good excuse!

As always, I’m happy for cycling support along the way. So, if you know anyone that wants to join me for a few miles then let me know.
