Coast to Coast - June 10th to June 17th 2017 (St Davids to Lowestoft)

This coast to coast was somewhat different to last year’s Trans Pennine Trail coast to coast in as much as it was all on road with just a few hills, more about later. The gang of nine, Mick , Dick, Ian, Peter S, Gwen, Keith (cycling) and the support trio of Julia, Barbara and Sue, otherwise known as BER catering on Wheels gather on Saturday morning June 10th for a six and half day cycling challenge from and to the widest points of the Uk that run in a more or less horizontal line as the ‘crow flies’, namely St Davids to Lowestoft. Once all loaded Peter drove us all to the start location in the hired minibus, for a Sunday morning start. Day 1 St Davids to Llanbydder, planned 55 miles eventual

Where did he go?

What a beautiful morning for a ride - blue sky and oh so lovely and warm. With Mick away on C2C duty, it was left to Steve and Adrian to organise the rides. Steve had booked the venue and it only remained for us to get the 29 riders there safely. With me taking the longer ride we left town via Tortoiseshell Walk and up through Great Notley. From there we were crossing in to Rayne when we lost our back marker - Gifford. The last sighting of him was stopping to talk to a lady. After searching and failed attempts on ring him, we carried on and were sure we would see him at the coffee stop. From Rayne we headed towards Fuller Street and on to Fairstead with a final hill climb up from White Notle
