Returning back from the Mongolia trip on public transport, I arrived back into the UK via Calais. I decided to cycle back home from there.
Cycling long distances for utility purposes in in the UK was not something I had considered before. However, with my cycle touring experiences, it now was normal for me to cover hundreds of miles by bicycle. I just needed to have the time.
After that trip I needed to go down to London a few times and I decided, instead of taking the train, to cycle. It became a kind of commute for me, 100 miles each way.
Blackberries for some sugar energy.
