We found this quote on an apron at a little shop on our Sunday morning bike ride. And while this Island may not be the only one, it is certainly our favourite. We spent the weekend exploring both ends of it by bicycle, stopping for local food and plenty of coffee, and sometimes, just stopping to enjoy the view.
Vincent Cox holds the Guinness world record for the fastest circumnavigation of the world by bicycle. At the recent intelligence squared cycling festival he celebrated the power of the bicycle to transport us at the perfect speed; to notice every small detail, and yet cover enough ground to see plenty of it.
This is surely the best way to travel.
