Liz'n'Les's Jersey Tour

Alternative W Wheels Sunday Excursion
by lhambly on Sun, 06/19/2011 - 18:06
Liz and I led an alternative Willingham Wheels Sunday morning ride today. In fact nobody else came - as we started and finished in St Helier, Jersey. An extremely efficient outfit pitched up with a van and a couple of decent hybrid bikes at our hotel at 09:30 and handed over a couple of helmets, a pump, a repair outfit and a lock. After a quick check over the bikes we launched into the teeth of a bit of a gale on the seafront and set off on what was a (nearly full) tour of the island. The weather was reasonably kind as the only heavy rain was when we had stopped for a cup of tea after about 12 miles. The trails were extremely pleasant and well maintained and kept us off the hideously busy main roads. A few very steep but thankfully mostly short hills were thrown in and we only needed two pints and an omelette at a nice pub on the north coast to sustain us on what was about 30 miles in total. Would have been a bit more but the weather started to close in so we headed home about tea time. Highly recommended route if any of you are ever here and have time for a ride.

Pictures are available but I have no idea how to post them so unless anyone advises me online you'll have to wait!

Au revoir.

Les & Liz

Hi Ambling Hamblies, Sounds fantastic. Great to hear that Willingham Wheelers are getting out there and spreading the word, or at least breathing the air and seeing the sights. To upload pictures you need to post this sort of thing under Admin as an article, rather than a comment on a previous article. Then you get a box to browse and send as part of the form. Or is the Admin/Article option only open to me?? If so, I'll ask Israel to open it up to everyone. Good luck with the op. PS Your names are on a wanted poster for bee rustling! The penalty could be severe, one, maybe two pints ....
