That sure was a great afternoon in Nottingham, with Mark T! For me, is was a trip down memory lane, since I lived in Nottingham for a while, way back in 2001! When I was dating a lad called David! I really had, forgotten was a nice city, Nottingham is!

It was also great fun using the Nottingham Trams, for only the second time! Need to go back again, really soon and use them again!

I met up with my friend Mark T (not not my house mate, this is another Mark), who got a LNER train service from, King’s Cross at 1:06pm, which got into Grantham at 2:19pm. Then we got the East Midlands Trains, which left Grantham at 2:27 and got us in Skegness at around 4:56pm.

Then we had a good walk around, took many photos, had some food before getting the 6:14pm service back to Grantham. Then we waited around at Grantham rail station, till Mark’s next train to London, which turned up at 8:19pm.

We had so much fun! Already planning our next railway trip!

Today 9 years ago, was the last day of End to End cycle! Even to this day, still can’t believe I did it! Try cycling for an average of 66 miles, every day for 15 days in a row and still how you feel! The total distance was 990.30 miles! Which took me 85 hours 22 minutes 40 seconds!

Still really, hoping that I will get to do it again, at some point…

That was a great cycle with Nick! We ended up doing 42.71 miles, which was great, since our goal had only been 30 miles! It’s even better, since it’s the second longest cycle, that he’s ever done! Well done Nick!

You can check out the route we took over at www.strava.com/activities/1792535139
