Today’s route was designed to be as functional as possible. With little scenery to admire, it was a case of getting some miles under our belt by using the main roads rather than touring the country lanes to which we had become accustomed. Alicia waved us goodbye at Tarporley and we headed directly north on […]

The only thing he could do was turn back and us currently at the physio. Hopefully he’ll be able to join us in Worcester tonight where our parents are meeting […]
