We set off again and just as we reached the dual carriageway we struck heavy traffic, so bad that it was like a parking lot. Instead of sitting in the traffic I started to lane split even though I had the panniers on. After about a mile I heard an ambulance behind me and all of the traffic parted like the Red Sea to allow it through
When the road was finally cleared we made it to Colchester and had the headlights fixed by 4:30. Although there were a few black clouds hanging around, there was still quite a lot of blue sky and the temperature was a comfortable 28oC, so we decided to resume our itinerary and headed off to Cambridge. It took two hours on the back roads which was much nicer riding than the damn highways. We had very little trouble finding a nice guest house (45 pounds) and before we could fall down exhausted, we walked into town found a pub and had a very nice dinner (mine was nice the BOSS was not so satisfied).
