Hospital visiting is a great excuse :-)

Sadly this week when we discussed who was in hospital at our staff meeting it turned out we had four church members in hospital, in four different hospitals. So this afternoon I got a lovely ride out to Melton Mowbray to visit E in the tiny (one ward) hospital there.

They actually had the best bike rack of any of the local hospitals, but mine was the only bike in it. Given what a horrible place Melton Mowbray is to cycle through I’m not surprised. It is a good example of Leicestershire’s approach which is to randomly assign footways as shared use without any thought about their suitability, the convenience or safety of cyclists (or pedestrians) – all to benefit King Car.

Apart from the bit inside Melton Moybray (“The Rural Capital of Food”!) the rest of the route is very pleasant  so I couldn’t resist a slight detour on the way home 🙂
