    Not really! I always like a solo adventure. It really is a different experience compared to going with a group. Both great fun but I love that isolation and independence of being alone. You meet more people too because you're more approachable by the "natives".
    Thanks
    Always someone who wants to talk when you are away,problem with my mates is all they want to do is blast to Helmsley and back

    A great read over a cup of coffee.
    I’m off to Bilbao ex Portsmouth in September for my first bike trip in Spain. Very much looking forward to it. Your report only makes me more excited.

    Hurry up and get back there. Enjoy your route back through France to St Malo. If you need any recommendations for accommodation around Britanny give me a shout as it’s my local biking stomping grounds.

    Thanks Neil. I've decided to come back via Bilbao. I've just booked the ferry 1st May 10.30am to Portsmouth. My flight to Alicante lands 25th April so that gives me a couple of days in the Spanish Mediterranean sunshine and then a leisurely 3 day ride north back up through Spain on mainly rural roads.
    I'm glad you enjoyed the ride report...part two coming soon.
    Spain is a great biking destination. A variety of roads/routes to chose from and hotels/food still relatively cheap. Great landscape/scenery. You'll enjoy your September trip.
    Regards
    Dean

    50!...happy birthday to you young man.... May 1st is my 56th birthday...and I'll be propping up the bar all alone I suppose on the Pont Aven... unless that is I meet a young lady who's interested in chatting about stroke length and shaft drives😀

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.

    if it is any consolation I am a miserable old fecker already. Although I do accept I need a few more years of honing my whining to get to all your standards
