If happiness is the score, England is right up there. These are images from PCyC Retro Ride on 12 September
In Wales, my nephew Gareth and I meet two Australians on a very long tour
Wales has the most laid back dogs anywhere. This is my German friend, Dagmar.
In Ireland, it is the way of life that entrances me. This is Castlebar.
This is MacCarthy's Bar
As Dagmar and I left Eire to cycle into Northern Ireland, we discovered the magical North West Trail, a sheer delight in Sligo, Donegal and Fermanagh. I must cycle this route again
With Dagmar, I discover the beautiful Antrim coast
Our trip into Scotland was too brief. We cycled the Isle of Arran which is said to be Scotland in miniature
Glasgow was my final destination in Scotland and this journey too finished with a smile
There is something for everyone on a bike in the British Isles. There are towering hills, epic scenery, wildlife seen from the saddle, long distance easy trails and always interesting people. 2015 is not finished yet and I will be out on my bike in South Devon
