LEJOG Day 11

LEJOG Day 11

LEJOG Day 11 and it was the best so far for me although the head wind near the end was a pain. Today we left Brora for Thurso but we went over the moors to get there which was fantastic. We had a tail wind all the way over which made easy fast riding all the way till lunch time. Although once past the moors we were into the head wind again for the last 15 miles with most of it a vicious cross wind which made for some hairy moments. Anyway we are almost there only some 29 miles left and we are at John O’ Groates

LEJOG Day 12

LEJOG Day 12

LEJOG Day 12 and OMFG it’s windy as hell up here, it might be the last day but by god it was going to make us work hard for it. So we started out by going up to Dunnet view point which is the northernest point in the UK before setting off to John O’Groats. We were fighting the wind and even hail on the way there before we were to all meet up at the café half a mile from the finish. We would all then join up as a group and head the last mile to the finish. It’s been an interesting ride with some hard days to start with and then getting easier towards the end with yesterday being my favourite day. Thankfully I have no major ache’s and pains and didn’t suffer any mechanical’s on the ride, not even a puncture Well that this ride over and now it’s onto he next one for next year, which will probably be in China.
