Preparing for the Final Day

We’re going to try the live map again but think part of the problem has been phone signals and we had no service at all at Rookhope where we finished yesterday so will update a connection as soon as we can.

Boo is looking forward to the downhill stretch into Sunderland but has the climb from Rookhope followed by the 5 mile climb from Stanhope first. Good job she’s had a full breakfast. She says she feels as ready to ride as this C2C scarecrow spotted en route yesterday.

We drove up the hill from Stanhope last night and it does have a rather challenging (17% gradient) beginning at Crawleyside Bank. It wasn’t even pleasant to drive up so might be hard work for the muscles stretched during the long slog of Hartside.

At least she has the memory of the chips at the top of Hartside to keep her going.

She filmed this view of Penrith yesterday morning. We’re looking forward to today’s views.
