Almost 400 miles covered so far, tomorrow we’re into the Pennines – eek!

Land’s End–John O’Groats, Day 6, The Pennines

Starting as we mean to go on – with Breakfast (this is usually part 1 of 2…) – Morissons is best!  We stopped in Blackburn for Martin to buy an MP3 player

Sadly, the MP3 player didn’t get used on the bike – only on the train… Martin had recurring knee trouble and had to bow out – this is him (not the knee!) after we placed the rescue call to Andrew… The three of us carried on

Into the Pennines proper, very scenic so I had the camera hanging from the strap – here’s me going slowly up a steep-ish hill and some of those dry stone wall things
