While on holiday it’s great to catch up with family & friends. This trip is no exception. We went to Hull to visit my uncle. While we’re we’re there we also cycled over the Humber Bridge – once the longest single span bridge in the world. This was surpassed many years ago… but it was a great ride.
We had a chat to the artist painting a tribute to Amy Johnson (first female to fly solo from Britain to Australia)- who was born in Hull. We shared some photos of graffiti we’d seen in Gdansk – which he enjoyed. Hopefully, I’ll see the finished version on the internet.
After that we set off for the bridge. We saw some art along Hessle Road
Traverses some interesting roads/footpaths/ cycle paths
Stopped briefly in Hessle to visit the library.
… and we went on our way again (no public toilets, newspapers or magazines), and over the bridge.
We stopped by the Sloop Inn for lunch
…. and back then North Ferriby.
Where we had another drink (needed energy to get back to my uncles)… and cycled down Boothferry road – which was a fabulous downhill. It was certainly a grand ride!
