Friday, and 46 miles from Burford to Reading, making a total to date of 462 miles.

After a lovely stay at the Wyck House Hotel, Margaret took me back to Burford so that I could resume the ride.

After a bit of a climb out of Burford, the countryside for the first half of the ride was quite gentle, although the blustery winds were not.

The highest point of the ride was near Harwell and after that I followed the main roads all the way to Reading. The views were quite spectacular although the intermittent hills were not welcome.

I arrived at my sister’s at about 4 pm with only 22 miles left to go tomorrow.

The purple line shows the huge distance Nick has travelled since the start of his journey. The red line is today’s miles, and the green is the home straight! To help Nick reach his target of £2000 (he is very nearly there) please donate online at: 

or by sending a cheque to Colin Gray, 14 Kenilworth Road, Fleet, GU51 3DA, payable to Fleet Pond Society. Your cheque will not be cashed until after the ride has been completed.
