    I love reading the roving reports from this site; I learnt of its existence after meeting a most charming couple at the Granary Swimming Pool, Amble Links. I don’t know their names so forgive my lack of knowledge. If the couple from Amble are reading this, I am the one who thinks riding 6 miles along the Quayside at Newcastle is a great accomplishment. I am so scared that I will not go out in cold or nasty weather, or indeed if I think anyone is watching me. However, I bought a cycling trainer hoping to build my skills, over the winter months, to a higher level in readiness for spring. I hope to be able to tell you tales of my adventures and I have set myself a goal of a 10 mile circular ride between Warkworth and Hauxley.

      Thanks for your comment Carole, that was so nice of you. I enjoyed meeting you in Amble that time in the pool and it sounds as though you’ve got a great plan going for yourself for the new year. Good luck with the winter training.
