Cycling to Rugby Tour - Bedford tp Drachtden

The mighty Bedford Swifts RUFC were back on the road again with a tour to Drachten in Friesland. The coach was packed and it dawned on me that 300 miles on the road on my own would be a great warm up for my first come back game after retirement with a dislocated knee.  Panniers packed, drinking goblet and 2 ft rugby ball secured and I was ready to roll.  Cycle to Felixstowe, hop on the ferry and then cycle through Holland to the rugby ground.  Apart from my rugby kit I packed light with a bivvi bag and camp mat.
