Mid Clyth - Only 28 miles to go

Pretty uneventful day today cycling wise. Weather was light rain (yes rain again ) and two challenging hills. A long, long shallow climb which actually went into the clouds. And a very steep climb which tested the legs somewhat.

Todays ride was a bit like going through the motions. It was the last full day. We have come so far, in quite awful conditions, but have enjoyed ever second. All good things must come to an end, and I miss my family desperately.

The weather gods are having a real laugh at us. Almost as soon as we finished the days ride, the sun came out. It had been a cold day up until then.

We are now within spitting distance of the end. Only 28 odd miles to go. I think that will give us a total of 1006 miles.

todays lesson - its not over until the big hills are cream'd.

Saw quite a few e2e's in the early stages of their adventures. Hope that they enjoy theirs as much as we have ours.
