Family Holiday

From left to right we have Rachel, Stewart, Mary, Martin and Anne. The Horder family are cycling from Lands End to John O Groats for a family holiday. Anne is acting as support driver, which may sound like the easy job, but if you saw how many suitcases she had to carry to the rooms you would not think it was so easy.

Yesterdays journey saw them travel from Ambleside in the Lake District and when they arrived we put on a meal for them. This morning brought heavy rain with Martin soaking up lots of it having to repair his bike. But the rain dryed up and the family cycled off in the direction of Sanquhar.

Details of their travels can be found here.
