Day 4 – relentless
My first full day in the van, missing the boys but enjoying the company of Rachel Allwright and Tara Nutt, I’m starting to feel like a useful member of the team which is nice. the boys had an incredibly tough day today, some difficult and confusing navigation led to some mistakes and an unplanned detour, taking in a few extra hills which were seriously tough. they’re tired and aching but still in amazingly good spirits, I’m in awe of the effort they all put in today and wondering how I’d have fared had my knees not given up already!
the scenery was stunning, i’m definitely coming back here one day… but i’ll be bringing a car, not a bike next time!
we received yet another incredible welcome in Shrewsbury, the churches that have put us up so far have been so generous, and we’ve been blown away by the hospitality of our hosts who’ve opened up their houses to us. it’s such a lift at the end of the day, big blessings.
i’ve decided to try this again probably next year, i’ll be doing it slightly differently and will start planing once we’ve finished this one, but i set off from Land’s End to John O’Groats, on a bike, for Adonai, and I will finish it, on a bike. when my body’s working again…
