Bicycle-Touring Great-Britain 15th-September 2014

Bicycle-Touring Great-Britain 15th-September 2014. Brora to John O’Groats. 63 miles. It’s been a tough 63 miles and not an enjoyable day by any means! In fact, the only part of today that I enjoyed was finishing! It’s been hilly, and I’ve had a strong headwind! So much so that I was even having to pedal going downhill! It’s not been particularly warm, and to top it all, it rained for the last 18 miles!

I struggled to find anywhere to stop for a break today (which probably accounts for my bad mood!) And the one place where I did manage to stop and get a cup of coffee, I got accosted by some old lady who proceeded to tell me her life story!

John O’Groats was a bit of a letdown! I’m not sure what I thought it would be, but whatever it was, it isn’t! Now I’ve made it to John O’Groats. I need to work out how I’m going to get home, as, unfortunately, I don’t have enough time to cycle back home.

Random thought of the day! If Scotland does go independent, there’ll be no more Lands End to John O’Groats! So I wonder where the most northern point in the UK will be then?
