Surprisingly little difference yesterday - I was knackered after what was a day with relatively little climbing... although it may be something to do with the stinking cold I now have.

Glasgow-Ballachulish the day before was definitely easier even at 100 miles vs 81 with almost identical total ascent.

Today, at 52.5 miles in, I hit 1000 miles for the trip!

Was sunny and warmish on the East coast today... not as sweaty as yesterday!

Bit of a headwind for most of the ride and quite a few nob ends in cars, but overall a good day.

Passing 1000 miles felt good...really good.

Pics later.

Bit foggy and cold up North today... theres actually a great big lighthouse about 50 yards behind me in the photo!

If theres any decent pics from today, Ill put them up later.

Many thanks to Mr Jamie Dyer for taking the time to meet me for a coffee and ride a few miles as my wingman.

I'm off to get slightly drunk now.
