KINGS LYNN - BOSTON
ESTIMATED DISTANCE 57 MLS
5 am I was packed and ready to go I had to get out of that place it was not good. We had breakfast which wasn't too bad until I went into the kitchen to pay.
9 am we were on the road early through the cycle lanes of Kings Lynn through the town centre, where Colin was going to get me to buy some mudguards in Argos, he was sick of getting sprayed off my rear tyre, hard luck closed for staff training. Down to the river side and then slowly out into the Fens.
|GOODBYE KINGS LYNN|
Nice flat riding
and we quickly forgot the Kings Lynn experience. Cycling through quiet little villages Colin cycling no hands round
corners. Lovely lanes .St Johns Fen end Colin looks at Sustrans sign fallen on the
grass, checks the design and sorts it out, redesigns the bracket. I think he finally realises we have been following these
signs for three days.
USING ONLY A BIKE SPANNER
HOPE ITS POINTING THE RIGHT WAY
12noon Wisbech we have coffee and cakes outside a pub, that must be first, while we watch the world go by. The sun is starting to break through as we cycle deep into the fens . The sun is shining and we cycle through quiet country lanes alongside orchards full of blossom, hit the county of Lincolnshire.
|ANOTHER COUNTY BORDER|
The lanes are really quiet we can cycle three abreast with the sun shining at last its
T shirt weather. We cycle along the main South Holland drain all impressed of how pleasant the Fens countryside is .To the next
accreditation at the village store in Tydd St Mary
approx 2 30pm.The idea was a pint in the pub and collect our stamp. The pub is closed
so we collect our stamp and chat to the lady in the shop she tells us her life history and how they don't get tourists. She obligingly took our photos before she popped down the village to post a letter leaving the shop empty apart from a little old confused lady who I think was a local although she was pushing a bike. We cycle on towards Holbeach sun shining wind at our backs 15mph 3 abreast brilliant.
|PHOTO OPPORTUNITY FOR THE THREE OF US AT THE ACCREDITATION STOP|
3 30pm ish Holbeach at last a pub that's open we plump for the Twisters Bar in the town centre. It was the first time Id been to Holbeach nice town. After a well earned pint we are back into the
sunshine over the main A17 and on towards Boston again through quiet countryside and sleepy villages. We see an old Guinness Tanker and stop for a photo
|MALCOLM TRIES TO ATTACH A BIGGER DRINK BOTTLE TO HIS BIKE|
5 30pm ish into Boston we have to cycle right to the far edge of the town to find our digs, unfortunately the lady has just recently had an operation so cannot take us ,but she has found us alternative digs unfortunately it is another couple of miles, we eventually find the place and no complaints it is very nice, and closer to town. Washed showered and changed we got for for approx 7.3Opm.The digs are very nice and an improvement on Kings Lynn, Colin could have a Warm shower. A night in Boston a few pints. including a visit to a Gay bar" Marthas" where Colin ordered a Martini and Lemonade much to the pleasure of the man in the black string vest and leather trousers. We end up in the Golden Lion, Kimberley ales a good pint, and a lock in! They thought we were sailors of a coaster apart from a bloke who thought Colin was an accountant. Back to the digs via Somerfields car park to flood the car park.
