From the Radio Times:

 - and The Express:

According to Martin Davis's (author of 'The Universal Computer: The Road from Leibniz to Turing') foreword, in the centenary edition of Sara Turing (Alan Turing's mother) book^ Alan M. Turing:

 "Although Alan let her [Joan Clarke] know from the beginning of his homosexual "tendencies", she remained willing to continue the engagement. It was after they spent a week together on a bicycling trip in Wales, that he decided that it wouldn't work, and broke off the engagement. They were, and remained, very fond of one another..." (2012, Cambridge University Press, p. xiii).
