Couch Surfing and Hospitality

Couch Surfing and Hospitality

For those of you who don’t know, couch surfing is a site where people offer hospitality to people for a night or two who are travelling or doing stuff like this bike ride. We’ve been really excited about how open and friendly and helpful people have been and also through friends of friends, even of their friends sometimes, we have had offers of beds for the night, some hot food, a hot shower and even breakfast! It really makes you believe in the kindness of strangers!
Last few days of preparation. This morning I cycled from Bridlington to Flamborough, to Filey and back through the East Yorkshire countryside. For those of you who don’t know East Yorkshire, it’s beautiful coast and countryside…. Reka has her mega 8 hour chemo stint tomorrow, then we just have tuesday and wednesday for last minute preparations. Wel’ll be driving up to Edinburgh on thursday and hope to reach John O Groats on friday lunchtime. Carl will have our mobile phones… so you will be able to reach us at most times. We will post a blog before we leave with our contacts and details of start and finish of each day for those people joining us for a day ride… thank you again everyone.. please blog us during the next few weeks!

  1. I hope the chemo went well, Reka. Meanwhile good luck – and good weather too I hope – as you head up to the start. I’m full of admiration.
    Looking forward to following your progress and joining you through Wales, when I’m sure the sun will come out. See you in Holyhead harbour on the 22nd.
    Happy and puncture-free pedalling! Mike
