Hard to believe this was ten years ago, when I was about two stone lighter and didn't have arthritis in my hands.

Here's a little blog I wrote back on the day about a bike trip to the Isle of Bute.

I enjoyed that, thanks for sharing. Well written and good photos and added something else to my list of places to cycle whenever we are allowed again.

Thank you Tyred ... it is one of my favourite destinations, and lockdown permitting, I will be taking my new bike there within a few months.
 
A great write up!
There's a wonderfully laid back vibe rolling off the pages.
A Kindle is a great bit of touring gear - as is the weather to read it^_^
People are friendly to folks on bikes
And 25 miles can fill an entire day on tour!

Perhaps you're not aware but there's an entire section for Travelogues here.

The only problem as I see it, is that after this you've set the bar pretty high for your next posts!^_^
Welcome!
