HLaB - actually, the weather was fabulous most of the time, out of 14 days it rained on and off for two days only.
sleekitcollie - the whole trip took 14 days/13 nights, with 10 days riding/3 days off (friends living in Prestonpans joined me for the weekends, so I took more days off than I would have otherwise). I rode about 980km, longest day was 130km, shortest 35km. Luggage weight was 20kg (7kg of those was photo gear - it is a heavy camera, especially with the AA battery pack, plus I took several lenses and a tripod).
