Scotland in sight for our cycle team

Day 9 and Scotland is in sight at last! The Land’s End to John O’Groats Cycle ride in support of the Pokot Rural Trust is approaching half way.  We have received another update from the team.  Since leaving Stroud on Day 6, the team headed north following the course of the River Severn completing 68  miles to Bridgnorth in Shropshire.  A detour to the night’s stopover at the Youth Hostel at Ratlinghope restored the morale of the team after what felt like continuous rain since leaving Land’s End on the 5th July.  The support minibus was beginning to resemble something akin to a mobile laundry and steam room.  Then onto Warrington for Day 7 which proved a fast day through the rolling landscape of Shropshire and then Cheshire.  Navigating through the industrial landscape and motorways proved tricky and finding the camp site flooded after a deluge of rain earlier in the week was less than desirable. Day 8 continued northwards through Blackburn and then into the beautiful Forest of Bowland and down into the idyllic Kirkby Lonsdale for for the overnight stopover. The team set of on Day 9 ready to cross Hadrian’s Wall and reach Gretna by the end of the day.  Crossing into Scotland will mark the point where we have less miles to go than have been covered. Onwards and upwards as they say.
