Week 1 Summary

Just been calculating out how far Dad has travelled so far around the coast on Britain. I tried working it out on google maps but it would never go on the roads I needed so armed with a good old fashioned map, a bit of string and a tape measure .... oh and a cat that was "helping" not .... I've worked out roughly as follows

Day 1 home to Liverpool 56 miles
Day 2 Liverpool to Southport 17 miles
Day 3 Southport to Morecambe 64 miles
Day 4 Morecambe to Barrow in Furness 50 miles
Day 5 Barrow in Furness to St Bees 40 miles
Day 6 St Bees to Allonby 24 miles

So that calculates out to a weekly ride of 251 miles which is bang on schedule!

Saying that not sure how far he will get today so we could be ahead of schedule by tonight.

  1. My mum and dad have just been round for their usual Sunday tipple with us and they have so enjoyed reading all about the trip can see it will become a regular Sunday feature! If your dad bumps into that bloke from Coast (Neil) ask him to give him my number! Jayne x
