Monday 22nd July. Sligo to Londonderry. 85 Miles.

Well I’m back in the UK!

That was such a good decision to stop yesterday when I did, the rain was nonstop all afternoon and evening.

Late start today, breakfast wasn’t until 7.30, which I always find is good value and worth having! I was still on the road by 8.15.

No rain today, well non to speak about, there was a brief shower, which soon blew over, but that was it. It’s been a very windy day, which luckily has been behind me for the best part of the day.

I was hoping to stop a bit earlier tonight, but where I thought there may have been a campsite, there was nothing! No campsites, no hotels, no B&B’s, nothing! Which meant I had to cycle another 12-miles, to Londonderry.

Unfortunately it’s another hotel tonight, the nearest campsite is 5-miles out of town in the wrong direction!

  1. What weather! The jet stream passed right through Ireland. That was some ride. Still, you had a good breakfast and didn’t have to strike camp. You foxed me when you said “back in the UK.” Yah boo! Youv’e got a satnav

    1. Still in the UK, should be back in the Republic of Ireland tomorrow, possibly.
      That breakfast obviously worked a treat yesterday!
      Hope your shingles are getting better.

  2. Wishing you a very happy sunshine day in the rugged countryside of the beautiful Northern Ireland xx
