Well the day has arrived! After months in the planning Day 1 is here.
We are all heading to the office in Chester Street for the send off. The press are coming along for a photo shoot which should provide some interest and hopefully some additional fundraising.
Paul has done a great job with the press and we have had plenty of coverage through his connections.
We are scheduled to leave at 8am and it will be nice to have family and friends there to see us off.
Day 1 in theory is a relatively flat 106 mile warm up. The route takes us through Ellesmere Shrewsbury Ludlow Leominster Ledbury and then to Gloucester. We are staying at Gloucester Docks tonight.
Weather looks mixed at the end of the day with the morning being dry and warm. Side winds from the east shouldn’t prove a hindrance. As we head further south it. Looks like we will run into some storms which could see a wet end to the day.
We will keep you updated.
