It’s a different type of beautiful. There is no one anywhere near…. happy Thursday everyone
If you are planning a big fight, you’d do it here right? On the marshes of the solway firth (end of Hadrian’s wall). Sadly (700 years ago) Edward, didn’t make it home. Here is his monument.
After a few days off seeing my boys I’m now back in the saddle and hope to be through the lakes before holding my breath through Lancashire and Merseyside. The following week I’ll be following the Welsh boarder down to the south west. Come and join me in you are near….
Slow start this morning as my tent needed to dry out and packing up in the rain is…well, wet… My plan, as ever was…I don’t bother. Actually that’s wrong. I make the choice not to plan the roads, gradient or even look at the weather in fear of rolling over and going back to sleep.Continue reading “Day 13 ….”Run, and you’ll live… at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day…..COVID may make it harder but it will never take… OUR FREEDOM!””
No Rocky Road available this morning so went for some Tiffin made by Hunters in Howick. Enjoying on a bridge and the road is called lovers Lane. Tiffin is very good – not sweet like many. Lovers sadly lacking, but might hang out another 10mins – you never know….
My clean white sheets are but a distant memory now as I’m back ‘wild camping’ just outside Jedburgh. You’d think following the England – Scotland border would be easy but I managed to take a few wrong turns today and didn’t get to where I needed to be till about 6.30.

WHAT are they……
Bit like my head sometimes….Calm then carnage #therivertweed
Every person in the UK should come here just for a moment. This is the most tranquil spot. There is absolutely no noise apart from the sound of the odd duck deep river diving or cleaning their wings. Ahhh breath….
Good Morning… where are you going today? Hope you have a great day 👍🙏👊
I After a bad nights sleep… moan, moan, moan….No it wasn’t due to the days hills, nor the rain hammering on my tent or even the wind threatening to blow me west across the Atlantic… My legs were tired…i know 🎻 I’m fact I was tired. I guess I’ve done a fair few miles fromContinue reading “Day 11 – Simon says…”pick up your phone”, Simon says…”
The news last night was depressing wasn’t it… It’s the first time I’ve watched any TV for 10 days. I am sorry to everyone that this is happening again BUT I feel. I passionately feel that we can all stay afloat. Especially if we work together NOT on our own. I am cycling today alongContinue reading “Day 10 – Who’s the king of the castle. But more interestingly who’s the dirty rascal….”
Ahoy….!! My first of 3 castles today Hopefully the dungeons are full otherwise this may be my last post
My evening in Whitley Bay or as my hosts Chris and Nina called it – paradise – was truly inspiring. I have used Warmshowers (a cycle touring room for the night service) twice and both times I have never felt so grateful and dare I say at home 😂😂😂 last night, you two really madeContinue reading “Day 9 – It’s blowing a fu3king hooley…”
