At about 8-30 this morning 5 blokes, 4 bikes and a van set off for Cornwall.
We made very good time and hit the A30 in Devon in mid-afternoon. It’s quite sobering to find out just how far Okehampton is from Land’s End, and just how hilly Devon and Cornwall are.
As we approached Land’s End we passed a group of firefighters completing their JOGLE and a group travelling to the start of their LEJOG. We had a brief chat with both groups before having our picture taken at the famous signpost, which I’ll upload when I get a better signal.
We then went to our hotel at St Just – the Cape Cornwall Golf club – and settled in to watch the football. Let’s just hope we’re not as bad a England tomorrow.
