Matt Houlbrook: mobile historian; beard growing, head shaving; occasional cycling.
Following the NCN Route 5 to Reading on a damp Sunday afternoon
An old man’s bike for a Sunday pootle
Loaded for the journey: comfort not speed.
Signs to follow
An interesting war memorial in Little Wittenham: a cross all to himself
The open road as the sun appears
Picnic time: the load is lighter now
An elephant companion for a Maharajah’s well
Journey’s end and homeward bound
