A few problems.

Aaron, Clare, Pauline and Steve were back on schedule. Unfortunately they had a few problems on the way back here from John O' Groats. They were having several punctures a day. The satnav went haywire and took them right through the centre of Glasgow. Then Clare hit a pothole and came flying off her bike a few hundred yards from our guesthouse. On the bright side the weather has been good and they liked the scottish scenery.
Lets hope the journey to Lancaster today will be problem free.

We'll be back.

Aaron, Clare, Pauline and Steve, were last nights visitors. They are doing a 2,000 mile round trip. Driving up to John O' Groats by car then cycling back again with Pauline as support driver. They will be spending tonight in Wick and then starting the cycle ride on Sunday morning, hopefully arriving back here in Gretna Green next thursday.
The four of them are riding to support the Precious Lives Childrens Hospice in Cornwall.

Family Holiday.

Last nights cyclist was Mark Johnston from Bedfordshire
Mark is cycling from Lands-End to John O'Groats, and wife Susan and daughter Fiona are driving along for the Holiday. So as Mark cycled up from Lancaster yesterday, the two girls enjoyed the splendour of the Lake District.
The highlight of his journey so far has been the great views over Shap in almost perfect weather conditions. The low point was the begining of the journey travelling into 35 mile an hour winds and rain over the Cornish hills. Next stop Ayr and a days rest from the journey.

Coffee Please

There was a knock on the door and there was two wet and injured cyclists wanting coffee. I swapped them a free coffee for a photograph.
Luiz (left) from Brazil and Duncan from Australia, met a while back whilst cycling in East Timor. Duncan has sustained an injury so they are parting company for the day and meeting up later in Glasgow.
The two are cycling just for fun and the highlight of the trek has been the beautiful Wye valley.
Good luck Luiz and Duncan (our first cycle visitors this year).
