It feels like there should be dramatic music playing as I type this, or at least a group of people calling out the numbers!
We are settled in, out of the rain, at the family room at the Land’s End Hostel where Susie made us all feel very welcome. Boo said that she would like to stay here longer and is especially impressed with her bunk bed.
Speaking of the bunk bed; Boo has gone to bed, hopefully thinking about the porridge we’ll be making in the morning. As we tucked her in she said that “I am excited about tomorrow, but too tired to think about it that much” Mark’s response was “Having driven down on the A30 I feel reassured that we have opted for the right route. But I am concerned about the terrain!”
Susie booked us a table at The First and Last Inn where we enjoyed a delicious supper (Mark commented that his pie had such a rich sauce and tender steak that he could understand why it was listed on the menu as ‘Our Famous Steak & Ale Pie), and Boo told our waitress all about our ride. We then discovered that there are two more LEJOG cyclists staying at the Land’s End Hostel (but they are heading up the north coast of Cornwall).
Before settling in for the night we took a quick detour to Land’s End and confirmed that the half mile downhill will be fine to ride on the tandem, so no need to mess around putting the tandem on and off the roof in the morning. We’ve identified the geocache we want to find, drunk our hot chocolates, chatted to the other guests, finally updated this blog.
Tomorrow the ride begins!
