Well, that’s flown by! 7 days of battling through the best of what the UK summer has to offer. Sunny again up here in the Highlands… Don’t know what the fuss is about. Plus its better when its minging, the photos are more atmospheric and receive more likes on IG!
Just a quick morning update. We had 3 riders battle through the night and arrive in the small hours. Claire, Simon and Howard all made it with time to spare.
Hard task master Niall, our man drawing the pretty pictures, didn’t chastise them this time for not taking a timestamped photo but instead let them sleep. However guys… its almost time for offski… get us thos pics!
A text dropped in just before midnight from Izzy, to say she wasn't going to make it the cut off time unfortunately! However, its not all wasted effort as she’ll carry on out of GC and aim to get us all in John O’Groats. The worst is behind you now Lizzy as you’re about to enter Gods Country. And its sunny. And its Bonnie. Nothing wrong with her or the bike but she put her sensible casquette on and decided not to risk it up on the hills and moors as the weather had drawn in and visibility was piss poor.
Jilly Dawes has also scratched, she’s sent a text so all ok but will await more info.
Going by the tracker, Leslie Brown pulled an ‘Izzy’ and made it in before the 8am cut off. He had a bit of a tyre calamity yesterday, so glad he’s managed to get to CP2 in time.
Think thats all for now. Need a cwof! Pronto.
More CP than DP this morning….
Wish I could have a rest day…
