Friday 23rd July

Barrow in Furness to Whitehaven - 65 Miles - 4hr 44min

Weather: Dry sunny and warm again!

Accommodation - Waverley Hotel

Easier ride for Phil today, well easier than expected. Hilly in parts, but only a couple of steep climbs. He cycled along the periphery of the Lake District National Park for most of the day - great views of mountains. Phil passed Sellafield power station and cycled down to the beach at St.Bees just south of Whitehaven. He suffered his third puncture of the trip at Seascale. He also met resident jenny bailie (a fellow cyclist) who provided him with some 'assistance' in the form of a good foot pump and a warming cup of tea. Accommodation located for Phil by Helen Anderson.
