Cycling On The Canal Towpaths


Recommended Posts

Hiya Katy jay. Feeling a bit more comfortable lately,so we have been off on our bike rides., early mornings though in case it gets to warm.

 

 Guess who was moored up by Autherly junction on the Staffs and Worc canal this morning, The very lovely 'Muchgigglin'. Tone was by the open door so we spent a little while having a chat, Julie was by the side hatch.

 

It was good to see them both as we always look out for them on our rides, but never expect to see them.

 

Looking forward to seeing Mr and Mrs BK, if you are ever sailing in our area, let us know and we will look out for you.:biggrin:

I'm sure the poor lady is distraught.  At times like that one is not worrying about which thread one is in.   Re.  the digression in this thread.  It was a little banter about a side issue w

This happens all the time TRD.  I doesn’t bother the majority of posters at all.  Just a single word can spark a memory for someone, but in this recent instance Chulla was referring to a comment that

An amendment to my last post. The 'Muchgigglin' was moored near to 'The Oxley Boat Yard' not 'Autherley Junction.' SOZ.

If you are referring to me Carni, much as I would dearly love to cruise again, I'm afraid we would need a bit of assistance nowadays, as 'er indoors is not so nimble on her pins and would find it difficult hopping on and off the boat or managing the locks, (she flatly refused to drive). We've both said we miss the canals and it's been a few years since we've splashed around. I have to make do with my video travels or relive events with YouTube contributors.

Take care Carni and stay safe.

Thankyou BK, Will do our best to take care. I have got a couple of smashing bruises from falling of my bike last Friday. 

We had got to within 80yds from our house and for some reason I just lost my balance. Must say the tarmac was very hard! 

My pride was more painful than my knees at the time?

I hope you both enjoy your travel videos for many more years. I expect you have some happy memories  to share together.:)

As the saying goes, " Bin there, done that, bought the T-shirt and made the film".

Hi Carnie.

So pleased you came across Tone and Julie again and had a chat.  i didn't know they were afloat again, I only know if they post pics on FB.  Thanks for the update, we were going to visit them next month while staying in Kent. But alas, another blooming trip cancelled. Sorry you took a tumble, I bet you are feeling it today.

You were probably thinking of summat like scoffing a chocolate cake when you got home, so you stopped concentrating on your bike.
