Day 4 - sunshine 99% heavy rain 1%


Today didn't start too well as Sarah had a dodgy tummy. We almost thought cycling was off. We started slow and steady in the wrong direction! (As instructed by our support team)

The bike computers constantly beeped at us trying to send us back to the start. There is no way we intend to do extra miles so we carried on until we reached Biggar. Sarah checked a map from the newsagents and we were soon on our way down the A702 to the first check point.

From there we followed national cycle route 74 which ran almost alongside the M74. It wasn't the most picturesque route but was easy going on Sarah's sore achilles. Today was Lawrence's turn for pain. His knees felt like they were burning and each turn of the pedals was agony.

Fortunately the sun was shining until the last 10 miles so spirits were up, especially when we arrived at Gretna Green. We had a lovely stop and listened to bagpipes whilst resting our tired legs.

Lawrence struggled to keep turning the pedals and so after Gretna it was very slow. We managed to find a large supernarket in Carlisle so stocked up on strong painkillers and knee supports.

A slow plod over the next 20 miles took us to our hotel in Penrith. We arrived much later than the others and so had a massive cheer and lots of hugs on arrival.

This challenge is tougher than I can ever describe on here but we will keep fighting on to raise as much money as we can for Macmillan cancer support.

Thank you 

Sarah and Lawrence
