Coast to Coast bike ride....not me!!

Andy and 3 others are setting off on an epic (?) bike ride on Thursday, from West to East Coast of England along the historical and in some places actual position of Hadrians' Wall. 
http://www.cycle-routes.org/HADRIANSCYCLEWAY/ So we've been packing and sorting and securing bikes and other gadgetry and equipment ready for setting off tomorrow.
We're staying a night in Eskdale YHA on Wednesday and then, hopefully a more comfortable night on Thursday in Carlisle, about 80 miles in, at a guest house.

M and I are acting as the rescue vehicle and having some quality mummy and daughter time en route, meeting up with the boys at lunch and at the end of each day. Then a few days in Northumberland with Andy's folks.

On another travelling note: I booked flights tonight to go to Knoxville, Tennessee, USA to see Jack and Emily in September - on my own!! After the last few weeks, Andy decided to bless me with the opportunity to use our banked airmiles, which gets me to Atlanta direct without costing us anything! Really looking forward to spending quality time with the Kings, their new baby and maybe, new house by then too!

Thanks Andy - and good luck and all the Vaseline you need to get through the next couple of days! saddle up!
