The highlight was Poole harbour with very good views of the Sunseeker luxury motoryachts operation and the never ending coming and going of other pleasure craft. There are varied eateries along the qauyside to suit all tastes, from take out chippy's to 'Italian gossip'.
We also had the bicycles serviced at The Bicycle Company with the owner Martyn Hoyle http://www.thebicycleco.com/ really giving both some well earned attention after eight years of moderate useage, brakes, chain and gears, wheels and some adjustments to riding position - all at £40.00 per bike and ready after two hours.
Did I mention Poole harbour?

Cobbs Marina with its 'dry stack' method of boat storage
With the prevalent sunny weather the cycling was most enjoyable and the two days spent around the boating activities of Poole was an unknown bonus.
