…and we are browned and burned, not from the sun but something far less pleasant, heavy rain, fierce blustery winds and sharp, hard-hitting hailstones.
We passed into Scotland today and roll off our bikes having completed 568 miles.
Perhaps the most remarkable scenery today as we cut through the hills of Lanarkshire. The whole team showing surprising competence now in tackling long and exhausting gradients. After yesterday’s 12 mile hill climb, we all seem ready to take on any ascent.
Vanessa’s bike gets lighter by the day with her removing more parts each day and even upgrading brake pads. Today, we though she had suddenly flipped as she removed a front wheel. We thought this was another tactic to save weight and to proceed Unicycle. Luckily, the wheel went back after a puncture repair.
Team dinner at 8pm tonight then Team prayers before bed. Another 76 miles taking us up through Edinburgh tomorrow, hopefully in the dry, if our prayers are answered ….
