Carl has arrived on the boat from Zeebruges into Hull. He will start filming today. On his way now to collect Reka and John and then come to Bridlington to collect me and my bike. We’re up to Edinburgh today and will stay overnight at Rob and Helens’ house tonight. Early start tomorrow and should be in John O Groats for afternoon. Afternoon/evening ride from John O’Groats….. beautiful sunny and fresh morning to start us off. Blue sky and sea in Yorkshire and as close to summer weather as we’ve had for a few weeks! My son Mark phoned at 5.00 a.m. to say my latest grandson had been born.. a wonderful start to the ride!
