CtoC Day 9

Posted on April 28th, 2013 by Neil

Short report today because the family are here with me. Today was the ‘flat’ day from Richmond to Ingleby Cross. Only 2 hrs rain, all early on. Approx 21.5 miles done today and here by 16:00. Felt surprisingly strong considering how I felt overnight. Not much scenery today, and it would have been hard to […]

Today was Keld to Richmond, my first of 3 big days. The great part was that I got to walk with Rich, a friend from the NE. He parked up in Richmond, then cycled to Keld, all for 08:30! (He’ll then drive home via Keld to collect his bike). Great to see you Rich – […]

I finally got off at just after 08:30. The rain was actually fairly light, but still incessant and wet! When it’s […]

Only a short report today because it’s late – I’ve been in the pub (Theakston Black Bull, 3.8%) – with the Brothers and Andy from Richmond. It was the local chippy’s grand reopening tonight – good food but quite amusing seeing some staff going through the learning curve. Today was Patterdale to Shap – so […]
