Day 16 Stonyhurst to Stoke-on-trent

After an early start we only managed to leave the O'Connor's by 8:30am due to bike repairs and suchlike. 10 miles down the road it started to rain, giving us a poor outlook on the day! it didn't really stop raining all day and when we stopped for lunch we were well and truly soaked which for some meant a change of clothes! we started after lunch withe the rain deceptively light because no sooner were we 20 minutes down the road we were back to normal. Despite all this we were still relatively happy keeping ourselves entertained by singing various classics to random people walking down the street singing back to us "Blame it on the Boogie!"

Cameron injured his knee in the afternoon cycling down a pot hole which he said "was actually the Grand Canyon nae' jokin'!!" however he carried on to stoke were we stayed in St Josephs, Burslem with the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate  and the girls in a parishioners house.

While the boys were left to our own devices we ate KFC, talked about football, dried our stuff and had a shot at the scales for which, one of us received a hounding about!

Ryan Day started from Hull the only news we have heard from him so far is that he got three punctures putting him above Andy and Greg O'C with the running total at 10.5 (one was a slow puncture!)
