    Hey Geoff !! :hello: Good Luck on your route. I statrted the trip last April, but because of the crazy weather last winter, I got stopped at Moortown in Somerset by the Police who were redirecting me to Glastonbury -18 miles the wronge way off of my course - and who wouldn't grant me an escort through the town - it was deserted because of the floods :bicycle:
    BUT .... I'm planning my retake for next March/April or even May !! :boxing: I'm currently regaianing my cycling juices and recharging my enthusiasum ... Good Luck for May 1st Hun, on that day I shall be starting my fitness campaign to loss 2 stone and get fit and get back into cycling around my beloved county of Devon :cycle: Have fun, enjoy the journey and stay safe !!:hyper: :cheers:

    Best of luck Geoff! :thumbsup:

    When are you planning to come through Carlisle? If the stars align (ie. I get the day off work) I can ride along for a bit if you want. :smile:

    Hi Mike,
    Be good if you could.
    Probably the 19th. Hoping to wild camp S of Carlisle at a secret location ;) on the night of 18th, then riding through Carlisle next day and on towards Gretna and Annan. Course, that might change along the way.
    Watch my blog and give me a shout if it fits.
    Cheers
    Geoff
