Painter's Trail

We see a few bikes as we travel about on holiday, but not a vast number. There is a remarkably large number of cycle routes around here, though, and rightly so.

As far as I can make out, the nearest significant route is the Painter's Trail, which runs for 69 miles along the Stour valley, celebrating the landscapes of John Constable, and other local artists. There is an article about it here.

Without realising it at the time, I've already covered some parts of the trail in my meanders on the bike this week. We covered a bit more of it on foot today. It looks like an interesting route to me, and well thought out. Oddly though, I can't find any information on what kind of bike John Constable rode.
