With storms and punctures, it took us more than a week to complete the 78 miles from Burbage to Redditch, Leg 2 of Stage 2, see the latest video
The next stage is the big one, 257 miles taking us all the way to Scotland. I'm desperately trying to get some more national publicity to keep us company on our journey and help us top our £1000 target (almost there £972 so far!), so if anyone has any contacts in the media, please do give them a nod!
It's taken me an entire week to write this blog and to finish the video but this leg was such a great one, I didn't want to rush it's story (that and split priorities with work, 2 birthdays and some sunshine!)
The 1st leg of Stage 2 took us just over 2 weeks but we managed a lot in that time, including the raising of Anya's media profile on the radio (leading to her first ever piece of fan mail!), in the newspaper and with the local papparazi . Thanks to Sonny, Larry, Phil and the rest of Burbage Camera Club for capturing our "arrival" back into Burbage in spectacular style and letting me use the photographs! Even though it was raining when we got to the White Hart, the welcome from the photographers, Claire and Lauren (and Enid) was heart warming. To the White Hart in general, thank you for all your support, maybe soon we can have a real drink with you to thank you in person and to show our support back.
A short one this time, but please take a look at the video and look out for us as we are cycling around the area :-)
It's only been a week and a half since we completed Stage 1 and started the first leg of our Scotland bound journey, yet so much has happened in that time, I thought it was worth a little update!
At the start of Lockdown Anya, 7, decided that she wanted to virtually visit all her friends and family since she knew she would really miss them! So, as a family, we started to use our daily exercise time to cycle (luckily we have some beautiful surroundings!) and kept a note of how far she got!
