Land’s End–John O’Groats, Day 7, Friday

After cycling over the west side of the Pennines we camped at Kirkby Lonsdale – another very lovely place.  Andrew (“The Drive”) found a great site, camping next to a babbling brook.  The evening consisted of beer and curry in the attractive townSmile.  Eventually we got going the following morning and after cycling for a while we stopped for a break (Mick needed a rest) where we were overtaken by a walker we’d passed about 20 minutes earlier…

By now the scenery was becoming routine and the weather has been rather fantastic (I’m tempting fate here as we still have four days to go as I write…)  Unfortunately there was a little hitch as the chain on my bike broke (probably because I’d been standing up on the peddles all day to avoid sitting on the torturous saddle device)

Andrew (“The Drive”) left us today and was heading south, swapping once again for Andy (“The Drive”) who we met at our evening’s accommodation at Boltonfellend
