LEJOG Day 11 Progress
Day 11 LEJOG - Wednesday 23rd September 2020
We left Westlinton heading for Scotland on a lovely sunny, but cold, day. Soon Gretna was reached and we took our opportunity for a photo stop at the border.
We then had a long flat ride for perhaps 40 miles but it was quite a boring and fractious ride as we paralleled the M74 motorway with its constant noise. We distracted ourselves with I Spy and it seemed to work as the miles tumbled by.
Midway through this 80 mile day there was a steady climb to Abington where we had our second long stop. Thereafter the ride was largely downhill towards Hamilton where we were picked up by Charlie to take us to the Travelodge Braehead for our overnight stop and another pizza.
