Enotrac LeJoG Day Eight

We woke to a fantastic breakfast by William and Meg. Freshly homemade bread and jams as well as porridge from a slow cooker were a special treat.

We passed half-way the day before and so treated ourselves with a late start. We were off at 9am expecting heavy rain again – so glad the forecast was wrong as we enjoyed sunshine the whole day.

The morning consisted of a 12 mile hill climb – we all cracked it, no leg cramps. Guess, we are all unaware of our developing fitness levels. Tomorrow, some wish to test their endurance and so there is a plan for a head-down 80 miles sprint ride to Lanark – though it’s probably more to do with wishing to arrive early to enjoy the jacuzzi and steam sauna at Lanark Inn.

Tomorrow, we pass into Scotland – Farewell England. John O’ Groats still feels a long way away.

Thank you Neil and Kristina from Kendal Hostel for their hospitality and donations which made Day 8 more enjoyable.
