Ride to the Western Hemisphere

Given that the weather forecast was rain for all day tomorrow, we scrapped the camping plans and spent 2.5 hrs biking to the Prime Meridian and back.  Here’s the route (28 miles).

The bike I rented really IS a sweet, light ride…

Here are Lisa and Steve after they recovered from thinking I was going to get run over by the cars on the road where you had to stand to take the pictures…

More pictures here.



  1. Wow, all the way to the western hemisphere!
    The photos are great.

    I went to the woods and back this morning with the fifty pound free weight and his chicken, to church, picked tomatoes from the plants dieing of late blight and then to supper at Ellie’s.

    • Yes, well, we DID start in the Eastern Hemisphere… 😉

      Sounds good. Today Lisa and I swam and the three of us made a trip to the grocery store. Lisa and Steve don’t have a car so all our errands are accomplished on foot and bicycle.

      Tomorrow we’ll take a train to King’s Lynn and ride 15 miles from there to the seaside and explore there for the day. More pictures forthcoming!

    • Hehe. Silly Kathie. Bike shorts are padded and you don’t wear underwear, so that isn’t a problem. 🙂
