C2C & HCW day 4: Hexham to Carlisle

What a beautiful day! Hadrian’s Wall Cycleway didn’t disappoint and the weather was perfect. The only downside today was our sore nether regions, which made bumpy sections of the route particularly challenging 😆. From the elevation profile of today’s route, we could see it was going to be another rollercoaster day. When we reached the... Continue Reading →

C2C & HCW day 3: Stanley to Hexham

100 kilometres! I have just cycled 100 kilometres! Without complaining… not much anyway 😆.

We were very lucky... Continue Reading →

Driving north through the forest

We needed to do a fairly long drive today to make up for staying in Titisee for an extra night. We set off towards Freiburg, stopping at a supermarket just off the main road to stock up on supplies... mainly beer and wine! We didn't end up visiting the town, partly because of time restrictions... Continue Reading →
