I know some of you followed Martin’s and Wilds’ tweets last weekend, but for those of you who don’t tweet, here is the summary, plus some exclusive extra content!
Friday 2nd May
On the train to Edinburgh to meet Andy for a 3 day reprise of the middle bit of last years Lands End to John O Groats. Edinburgh2Bury
Saturday 3rd May
Andy and Martin must be on a cycle trip again. Chris Hoy’s gold post box just near the Royal Mile in Edinburgh.
Fair to say that some of today’s journey cant even be described as off road. More like off track thro the Pentlands
Monday 5th May
Just stopped of at an old family friend (June) in Low Bentham. A third of today’s mileage done but the big climbs of the Bowland to come.
Now back in 3G land having dish & chips in Clitheroe. Forest of Bowland now behind us. Propper hills.
Photo from Mondays bike ride. For those that remember the best LEJOG photo you can see that Andy is still a Whalley.
All finished. About 215 miles over three days and just like when we did Lands End to John O Groats it rained for the finish.
Stats fans will like to know the following:
(Sat / Sun / Mon)
Miles – 74 / 68 / 72
Ave speed – 10.7 / 10.9 / 10.0 (I told you it was windy!)
