STORY BY: MICHAEL (Mick) LORD

This Friday the 3rd May myself (Mick) and my wife Julie will be setting off to cycle the 170 mile Way of the Roses route that goes from Morecambe to Bridlington, crossing from the West coast of Lancashire to the East coast of Yorkshire.
We are not regular cyclists, we were just looking for a bit of adventure over the Bank Holiday weekend, so the plan is to cycle it over 4 days from Friday to Monday staying in Bed & Breakfasts and a friends house on night.

The plan is to have a long first day around 50 miles from Morecambe through Lancaster, Settle to Malham on the first day, coming out of Settle there is a large hill that will almost definitely see us pushing the bikes up.

Second day onto York to stay with a friend and then to see how our legs, saddle sores are holding out as to how far we go for next two days. We are hoping to be going slow enough to enjoy it and take in the sights along the way and staying in B& B's has enabled us to keep the bikes as light as possible.

I will try up date as we progress if possible if not I will send my blog at the end of the trip.
