I thought I should make a public apology to the two cyclists who I gave directions to this morning, as I've just realised I sent them the wrong way. They may well be on here somewhere, or still cycling in circles! I met them on the caldew cycle path looking for the reivers route. They'd followed it as far as Carlisle then lost the way somewhat. All they knew was they should be heading for Rickerby, then Brampton. So I directed them back the way they'd come, and up the road passed Rickerby park and on to Brampton rd. To be fair I did tell them at the time that I didn't know if it followed the official route, but that the road would definitely get them there. I've just had a look at the route map on line and it goes a very long way round -almost via Gretna - to get to Brampton. If they followed my directions they'll have cut a good 20 miles off their cycle - they might be happy about that, they might not. We've attempted to follow the cycle routes before and the route markers just disappear or double back on themselves and make very little sense -has anyone else found this, or am I just a typical woman about directions?! I'd like to tackle the c2c next year, but I fear for where I may end up!
