| Peter with his first salmon in Scotland
||Trevor with his recumbent bike. He was setting out from Bristol to ride to Salisbury. He reported: Here you see my BikeE newly equipped with the slimline Continental back tyre I got from recumbent specialists Comfort Cycles of Mangotsfield, near Downend.
The railway path was quite pleasant, and an easy way to warm up for a 50-mile ride. From Bath I took the A36, which is lovely going up the Kennet valley past Monkton Combe and all. When it then cuts across country on the way to Warminster, it becomes rather dull and is engineered to give the impression that it is a motor-only road, encouraging speeding by motor vehicle operators. A few miles on there were some traffic cops doing speed checks - gave them the thumbs-up, you can be sure.
From Warminster I took the winding road on the west side of the Wylie valley all the way to Salisbury, and even had some blackberries on the way. Oh, and a balti in Salisbury while waiting for the train!
