Hard days slog.

Michael Crane and Ian Condron spent almost all day cycling from Blackpool to Gretna Green. They arrived at 8 oclock in the evening but admitted spending the last hour in the pub. The pair decided they would like to cycle over a hundred miles in a day and Gretna Green seemed the right target distance.

The highlight of their journey was the ride downhill from Shap after an exhausing ride to the summit.

The ride back should prove less of an ordeal as they plan to break the journey in Kendal.

On a bicycle made for two.

Dave and Ann McDonald are cycling from Lands End to John O Groats and are the first tandem cyclists we have had staying here.

Yesterday they cycled from Kendal to Gretna Green and they reported that the conditions were very favourable.

Their favourite part of the journey so far has been their home territory of the Forest of Dean. and their only gripe is that some of the cycle paths have obsticles to deter motor cyclists and are not designed with tandem in mind.
Good luck Dave and Ann.
