On Tuesday I was in Bermuda with the whole day free before flying home, wanting to do something different from my usual visit to the beach I decided to hire a bike and go exploring. I chatted to the hotel concierge who suggested the Bermuda Railway Trail. Stretching across the whole of the island it is a wonderful way to explore this stunning archipelago. I only covered three of the eighteen miles of track but came across some lovely spots. The track is well signposted and has information boards along the route explaining the history of the railway. Meandering through tropical woodland, past pastel coloured houses and along Bermuda’s beautiful waters there is so much to see. I got a little bit lost at one point but with the help of a few friendly locals I got back on the right path. I imagined that being an old railway line it would be a straight track, but was surprised to find in parts it to be quite a work out cycling up and down hills and peddling through some deep gravel. So, on that note I would recommend wearing decent footwear, as I struggled at times in my flip-flops! Water and suncream are a must too. I throughly enjoyed my day exploring a little part of Bermuda by bike, next time I go back I will get back in the saddle and explore some more!
