Well, that's it then....finished!  I arrived at Lands End on schedule at around midday on Wednesday 20 June on a very foggy day.  Hard to believe it's June.

A bit of hard work I have to say and there were times when I doubted my own sanity. From the very top a...

...it is now!  

I'm totally wiped out,  running on autopilot at the moment and trying to come down from the intensity of cycling 70+ miles per day.  My body is definitely showing signs of stress not least the McBite on my leg from the McFly that I picked up in bonn...

I've only gone and bloomin' made it!  Totally shattered.  Big report tomorrow.  Watch this space.

Leaving North Tawton very early this morning on my way to Simon Browns in Cornwall.

This is Peter Cripps who I’ve mentioned before . Trumpeter to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at her Coronation in 1953.  A wonderful host who invited some of his friends along to dinner...

Up early again!!! Cycled down the Bridgewater to Taunton tow path - lots of very protective swans looking after their cygnets.

A lovely feature of the canal is the interpretation of our planetary system. There are models of all the planets and our Sun spaced along the 1...

From Gloucester down to Bridgewater.  Great progress made on a very quiet Sunday morning on the roads. Very few lorries which meant I could use the main roads and not faff about with the National Cycle Routes which are a complete pain, scenic but they end up putting ex...

Managed to have a bit of down time this afternoon sat on the patio in the sun doing nothing more than some much needed ba...

No photos today. My Garmin sat nav has completely given up so I'm having to conserve t...

An 'interesting' night in my B&B.  In order of importance....no phone signal, no WiFi, no flushing toilet.  Only 2 hours sleep due to plumbing ‘noises’ meant I was up and away by 6.00.

Weather warnings  were out as the Storm Hector was about to hit. The 7...

What started as a beautiful calm morning developed into one of the hardest rides I’ve ever had to attempt. From the Lakes to Slaidburn in deepest Lancashire.

Stunning views across to Lancaster and the North Yorkshire Dales but the hills were endless and unforgiving.
