Day 15 Carlilse to Stonyhurst

Leaving Carlisle we travelled south to Stonyhurst Lancashire covering around 93-100 miles (We don't know exactly as the bike with the milometer broke and he needed picking up!). we made a good start to the day covering a large distance of 50 miles before lunch in a pub near Kirby Lonsdale for a bit too long.

We started again this time with a strong head wind and made for the Moors, these hills were not for the faint hearted! The Moors were highly challenging and even required walking some stretches (for some!!) Although the scenery was stunning it was back breaking work, which meant we didn't arrive at the O'Connor's till 8:30 whereas lovely spread was laid out for us and we were instructed on some lovely stretches.

Weather: still lovely surprisingly

Terrain: Absolute  murder...

Food: The evening meal Perfection!

Puncture count: Andy is joining the League table with an untimely puncture less than 5 miles from the house destroying his inner tube with 2 massive slits! he was disappointed to have come so far to be driven the last bit.

All in all it can be said, "when the going gets tough, the tough get going!"
