Why bother?

Ironically, I intend bettering my 15 mile round trip. Whilst contemplating the end of all things. The stopping of matter. At the Cern Large Hadron Collider where, in May, (or more likely, in the Autumn the way these boffins are going..) there will be an attempt to open our understanding.

Hopefully, my girth will reduce and my weight be more evenly distributed as a result of my bettering time. I fully intend applying the cyclical rhythm to my daydreaming and try to understand a little of the physics as I go.

Tonight, after work, I cycled from Links Avenue in Whitley Bay to Seaton Sluice, on to Blyth, left and uphill to the Bedlington Roundabout and back to the Coast via Seaton Delaval. The route is varied and not too taxing. I can do the measured 15 miles in almost exactly 60 minutes. I aim to better this by distance, The time will take care of itself.

I have inherited my bicycle. It has had three previous owners but has been very well looked after and a bargain when I got it. I swapped it for a bottle of Malt Whisky. A previous favourite heart medicine of mine.

I shall post my progress and some pictures of the route as I go. Here's the first map (hopefully!)

Looks like you have much nicer places to cycle around than here in London!
