Day 2: Reading to London (44 miles)

So i have arrived in London! And my legs and unmensionables are still holding out! It feels like an age ago that I set out from Calne. Just watched a video my friend Jo took of me leaving the drive. It all feels quite unreal still, but it's actually happening! 100 miles down 700 to go! After quite a painful ride yesterday I have been trying to decide if I need to leave some things behind. Like my unicycle, because apparently it's not an essential item. But remarkably today was actually ok. So I think the unicycle will see another day! I have probably been lured into a false sense of security by sunshine and flat roads but hey optimism is a gift. I'm not sure if I have any great pearls of wisdom for today other than that London cycle lanes are a joke! And not a very funny one at that. So tomorrow is a day off I get to hang out with one of my best mates all day which I'm really looking forward to. And then on Monday on to Gillingham for my first couch surf!


  1. Hey Josh did you see the blog I wrote about you?

  2. Hi Josh,
    Glad to be able to follow you, and already looking forward meeting you next week. Wish you a very nice first Couchsurf experience.

  3. Hi Josh, just thinking about you and you little legs. Just keep going and as the Americans say live the dream. You are an inspiration to is all, particularly those children at Sunday school... Dream it, believe it, achieve it. Keep us posted no matter how dull your day has been :) love ems
