Here’s a little summary of my Errandonnee rides, 9 rides in all covering the 12 different errands and a total of 38.38 miles in the space of a week. I’ve really enjoyed it, and I’ve seen and learned a few interesting things along the way.
If you ask me, my highlight would have to be the trip into Warwick (#5). I got so totally lost but ended up finding out about the 1950s boxer Randy Turpin, and hearing the chimes of St Mary’s church. It’s given me a nudge to get my folding bike out, and while it’s by no means the most comfortable bike it does what it says on the tin – gets me someplace quickly and efficiently. I think what I’ve found most remarkable about Errandonnee is how easy I found it to complete. It brings it home to me just how much my bicycles have become a part of my everyday life in the last year and a half.
