Take the Long Way Home

In 1983 I set off on a personal odyssey, cycling for four months around France and covering 3.500 miles. You could say taking the long way home, before returning home to Rochdale. It was both a physical challenge and an important test of mental fortitude. This picture shows the moment of departure from Rochdale town centre, surrounded by a motley crowd of locals, some of whom hold items of symbolic significance.
