TESSA, Thanks for the comment. I have a cell phone and a Garmin. No extras to confuse me. DH knows Bedford but I have no clue. He used to bike all over. I actually did too but not together. We all have bikes but here in Maine there is no way to take to the highways. I was 5 when I got my bike to ride to school. The Bobbies used to come in with a huge board on a stand and it was laid out like parts of Stockton on tees and they had us learn the highway code. They did random spot checks where our bike racks were located. We would be looking out in o the playground if they "Pulled" our bikes. Low tires and no bell were the usual issues. We were taught to walk with the highway code. We were told to walk in the country, with the country code and we were taught the rules of the roads to cycle. I am happy I and DH were both raised in England. We came here from Middlesborough for a two year job for DH. We came to Maine and never went back, My mother came annually till she was injured and died from. works accident in "Hills" in Stockton. It became Scott Paper Company after we left. Pat in Maine USA.

Tessa, I just located Tatsfield village in Surrey, since I was curious. It doesn't look that far from London now, but in 1970 I know we biked 50 miles, uphill! emoticon

Congrats on the loss this week.
