Tuesday 13th Ride etc

From Jon Lane


Good to read your posts, keep ’em coming, well done laying down the miles…

I had a good ride myself today, up to Mile End hospital. A run through Barking and Ilford area, a great ethnic diverse mix of folk here – and a loop around the canals and the back ways to the hospital. For me these quirky and interesting routes of East London are fascinating… A coffee with my fellow diabetic mate Darren and into our extremely well run and organised support group… Home through more back ways, taking in Poplar High Street, Leamouth, Silvertown and through the Woolwich foot tunnel. Instead of a river side ride I found a flat-ish route via Thamesmead and onto Erith. Blood sugar going low… so had a ‘Macdonalds’ scoff, Big mac, Chips and a sugar coke which pushed it upwards (-: Onward, avoiding the Dartford tunnel crossing, taking various out of the way paths beside the Thames – under the QE2 bridge to the Gavesend ferry and home. The only downside is that whilst the ferry was coming into dock it unintentionally rammed the Tilbury Landing Stage hard… and I hit my ribs on the door frame… The’re a bit sore now … I probably won’t be at Puddle’ tomorrow and the cars in for its MOT… Have a good one and Cheers! to all…
