Nice photo, dined there a few times when visiting family. Tell me Mick, do you cycle everywhere or have you got alternate transport to carry your bike.

strange memories of that place. I was alone in mum's house after she died; I knew she had mice but one jumped on the bed one night and I fled in tears to the Beeches. my family stayed there when they came for the funeral. It was a nice place and good food but sad memories for me

Derek I do have a shiny car as alternate transport but I never use it to carry my bike.
Yes all my Photo-a-Day are taken while still sitting in the saddle, and when most Wiganers are still in there beds.

Is it a bird? Is it a Plane? No it's Mick the Phantom Night Rider with his roving camera! but there's no denying he does take some good pictures.
