Dad’s had a great day today – he’s safely in Moffat and he felt that he could have gone further (the first time we’ve heard him say that!).
Tomorrow he will be heading up to Glasgow – and it’s great that he will be accompanied by Peter Kane and some other Sustrans volunteers who will provide moral support and help him to navigate his way through Glasgow – much appreciated!
It’s been an exciting day on twitter – Jasmijn Muller is attempting to be the fastest woman to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats (and the 1000 mile record while she’s at it)- she set off early on Saturday morning, arrived in Scotland about an hour after dad and as I write she’s already heading beyond Kinross… For more information, live updates (and her fund raising for Cancer Research UK), visit her web page: https://www.lejogrecord.co.uk/ Plus an amazing family has also completed the ride in 22 days, 3 hours and 26 minutes, making Rhoda (on a trailer bike) holder of the ‘youngest cyclist’ record! https://www.facebook.com/FamilyByCycle/
Dad’s ride and this blog has opened up a world I didn’t know about… I’m not sure it’s enough to tempt me though, I think I’ll stick to running!
