We are now firmly riding south through England, and we start our own version of a coast-to-coast ride over two days, as we head south, slightly towards the west down to Richmond. This sets us up perfectly for the following day and part of the 2014 Tour De France route through the Yorkshire Dales.
If you are wondering why the map is marked with bike shops, mainly Giant dealers, both Ashley and Paul are Giant bike riders, and what our previous 2013 LEJOG ride taught is, at some point over a 1000+ mile bike ride, mechanical gremlins will strike (last time Paul fell and damaged his rear derailleur). So this time we have made sure our entire route is marked with local Giant bike dealers, just in case!
