Spencer Robson - Lands End to John O'Groats Cycle

by Gill Williams - 19:10 on 15 June 2016

Ĺštarted today in the rain. Rained all day and is still raining now still could be worse! More industrial landscape today as I crossed the M5, M4 and M48 motorways heading north towards Gloucester. Travelled along some beautiful canal paths but had to concentrate on not falling off my bike.  Thing about canal paths is when it rains for a long time they become muddy and very slippy, like riding on ice. Progress was slow today, at times It would have been quicker to push. Also got lost so I asked a local who happened to pass by and she promptly directed me about 20miles in the wrong direction. When I told her she may be mistaken she said she was useless at directions and to ask at the village post office. I asked the owner of the post office and she began to explain when her husband appeared and directed me a different way.  They then started arguing with each other so I left! Like little Britain.

Anyway, safe and sound in a great B&B Gail found for me listening to the rain and preparing for tomorrow.

Not nice mate. Going 20miles in wrong direction in a car is frustrating. On a bike it must have been devestating.
