M-Trax, great to meet her, she took it all in her stride I was surprised she left at dinner as she seemed to be doing well. Fair enough, knowing another dose of what ya done was coming is a bit crazy i realise.
I could have made it back, but I figured I was some what slower than you guys and being a mathematician I did a quick calculation on how long it would take for the return based on the mornings journey. I didn't want to hold you guys back till the sun started going down so opted for the 'Dan' get out clause.
Great pictures, makes me want to go and do it all again.
Does this mean that, if I had gone by road, I could have had a lift?
I'm sure it would have taken me twice as long on the road even with the pushing and tugging of the bike that I had to do over the hill. I think I walked as much as I rode - possibly more! There were times when I wondered if I'd ever see my wife and kids again. Although I did ride the 'flagstoned' stretch on the top and up that vicious cobbled climb at the end up from the bridge. Easier going up it than down it!
Whatever, I enjoyed everyone's company and the scenery, the view from the top on the way back was outstanding. I'm sure you could see the Humber Bridge from there on a really clear day.
But I wouldn't like to be lost up there on a bad day - a frightening prospect!
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
