After 4 days spent in Scotland we make it to England today. I’ll be sorry to see the back of Scotland. we’ve had great weather and the privilege of cycling through some amazing scenery. Today’s ride starts in Annan and finishes in beautiful Ambleside in the Lake District. It’s close to hime, so we’ll be driving back to Preston later and returning to Cumbria and Scafell Pike tomorrow.
I’m very excited to be back with my family tonight. I’ve been away 5 nights/ 6 days and I’ve missed Louise and the girls massively! It was Isobel’s birthday and although we celebrated before I went away it was a massive wrench not to celebrate her 6th on the day. It’s also the first day of school for Isobel and Skye today. can’t wait to hear how they’ve got on.
It’s tough being away, but with more than a week to go we’ve raised more than £1700. This money will be used by three brilliant charities Beating Bowel Cancer , Rosemere Cancer Foundation and Mummy’s Star to help some very worthy patients and families, so it’s worth our family’s sacrifice. I’m really looking forward to some time together when I’m done
