We made it! We’re in one piece – no disasters!
Had a good ride from Stockton-on-Tees mainly off road on some great cycle tracks. First part was on NCR 1 and on tarmac
but rather a lot of these annoying barriers!
These gave way to rougher surfaces and at one one point Nigel did come off a couple of times but slithered rather than fell. No damage but a bit shaken.
After a while the going was easier and we sailed along through some beautiful countryside
After about 18 miles we turned west on NCR 14 and saw this sign
Some local lads asked us what we were up to and informed us that we were
bonkers. Too right.
From there it was a lovely ride into Durham ending up by the river then up to Palace Green
Sarah was there and had organised a great welcome.
Now all that remains is to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us in so many ways, cheered us on and made such generous donations. Thank you for reading the blog and thank you Jonathan for making it possible.
Finally, a tribute (from Debbie) to Nigel’s determination and perseverance in doing this. Although it’s been great fun it has been incredibly hard at times, as those of you who are also grappling with Parkinson’s will understand only too well. Undertaking and completing this journey has been a fantastic achievement.
