On of the young guys from our office rode Lejog at Easter with a friend. It took them 10 days which is prity impressive in my book. He told me how they were feeling very pleased with themselves. They bumped into a couple of brothers who had finished the same day as them, in the pub that evening. It turned out they had taken 8 days , on a slightly shorter route, but still impressive. At this point they said that’s only halfway for them. They were about to set off the next day and run back to the start in 23 days. Now that’s a challenge!
As for me I will be riding until Sunday 29th May and then I will have a week off the bike for my sons wedding up in Alnwick. Making a little holiday out of it. I could take the bike and get a few rides in, but to be fare to Jill, I am going to take a break so we can spend some time together. It wont do me any harm to recharge the batteries, and then press on for the Great Yorkshie Bike Ride a couple of weeks after.
This weekend we are looking at secondhand cars with my daughter Amy. Her 10 year old Ford KA finally bit the dust. It failed the MOT big style, with a repair bill more than it was worth. We have a fancy for a Vauxhall Corsa, so we will see.
