Cycling to discover the British Countryside

The British Countryside from an Italian point of view.
I’ve been living in the UK for about ten years now, and as a lover of the outdoors, I love to explore the countryside to find new places full of character. As you cycle you take so much more in of your surroundings than if you are sat in a car. I particularly like the look of old houses and old pubs, their little windows and all the details that shows how well they’ve been looked after and cared for over hundreds of years.

This is the White Bear Pub in Warlingham Surrey, it’s a 16th century country pub located in between Croydon and Biggin Hill, along a quiet road I often cycle through.

Lovely Springtime for cycling around Box Hill in Surrey

Beautiful sunny days this April in Surrey, although today was a bit windy which makes cycling just a little bit harder, but I love the fresh air and the clear blue sky.
Box Hill is one of the best roads to cycle up in this area and, since it was part of the Olympic Games route, it has become very popular amongst cylists and lovers of the outdoors.
