Spencer Robson - Lands End to John O'Groats Cycle

by Gill Williams - 21:27 on 17 June 2016

Left Kidderminster today bound for Stoke and beyond, about 70 miles I think. Back onto the canal tow paths watching the barges pass by. What a great holiday that would be me thinks, so relaxing. The weather was kind to me today and I made good progress dodging the puddles and ducks along the way. Had a great chat with Sue who was walking a couple of rescue dogs. Great laugh. Then further on I met a couple of woman who were Geocaching. That is they go for long walks looking for treasure at gps coordinates. They were really nice and we chatted for ages. It's amazing how many people chat to you when they see the panniers on the bike. They're a great ice breaker. Forget to mention I had the best bacon sarnie and Cup of tea of my life today in a bakers in Swindon, all I have to say about that is total lush and thinking of moving there. Carried on past Wolverhampton and Stafford where I had to ride through flooded roads and got wet feet. Hairdryer on trainers again tonight. A good dry day today with great views and scenery apart from parts of Stoke.. Not on holiday list. Manchester and beyond tomorrow😀
