It’s going to be a hot 8degrees today – no cycling today! Some of the bargains I did not bag at the book sale at the local public library
Strolling through Debenhams I saw this lovely piece of trendy furniture. So pleased Australia’s native wildlife has inspired someone to be creative.
Even with 20% off not buying it!
To get to the start of today’s ride we catch the train to Goole. <not mentioning price> the internal train interior reminds us of something from the 80s. I do feel for people who find it difficult to get up steps or in wheelchairs.
We are seeing this match today.
As a result we are attending the market At Beverley the is morning. We are currently on a train. See it, say it, sorted.
Today is a crisp 11 degrees- how nice!
Yes folks, we’re in Hull. We are here as my uncle lives here. My mum is also staying with us so she can spend time with him.
So we are basing ourselves here for a few weeks, doing a number of rides on our bikes and seeing stuff. Here’s to the next few weeks!
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!
While on holiday we’ve chosen to spend some time in Hull visiting relatives. I’ve been to Hull many times over the years, and it certainly has improved. We spent the day walking around with my uncle – even exploring some places he did not recognise, and taking him to some he had not visited in decades. As they say nothing like being a tourist in your own town! It’s certainly been great catching up.
And there is nothing like controversial public art!
