Day 11

Enjoyed a lovely overnight stay with Ian and Anne in their Cheshire (it's right on the border) farmhouse. Ian and I are about to head off up to Delamere Forest and the Camping Club site there. I'm probably as close to home now as I'll get here, on the far side of "Cheshire East", the other side being about 3 miles from home. Also watching BBC North West on t'telly, as at home. It feels strange.

Now at site. Great 34 miles. Got here 1pm and enjoying a proper rest.


  1. Hi Geoff, I really enjoyed our ride today. I extended it a bit on the way back to reach 120km (75 miles). At the entrance to the farm I was about 1km short, so continued up the lane and back. How sad is that?

    Garmin tells me I have consumed more than 4000Kcal. Now I jjust need to convert that into slices of carrot cake.


    1. It's clear to me that you need kilometer therapy Ian. I prescribe riding without computer:)
      I hope Anne accommodated your calorific deficit.

  2. Hi Geoff, sounds like it's going well. I feel much better about my forthcoming trip since chatting to you. I've reduced my intended daily mileage and I'm almost looking forward to it. Please blog any useful tips. Keep going... Adele

    1. Hi Adele, thanks for visiting.
      You SHOULD be looking forward to it. One of the most enjoyable experiences of my life!
      Tip 1: eat and drink LOADS, I repeat, LOADS :)
      Tip 2: eat and drink LOADS ... you get the idea ...
