And Mike clearly understands the joys of pedal powered travel

So, where are we at, we Brits, in 2009? I decided now was the time to live out my round-the-island fantasy and see for myself. And what better way to do it than by bicycle, the most civilised mode of transport known to man, open to the environment and part of it, fuelled mostly by bananas and beer, prey to the winds and the rain, slow enough to absorb the passing world and its smells and sounds, quick enough to escape snapping dogs?

Mike is also asking for interesting places to stay and people to ride with as he navigates his way around our island. Mike I await your call.
