You may all remember that on 26th July 2020, did a blog post about hoping to cycle from York to the Tan Hill Inn, which is the highest pub in Great Britain at 1732ft above sea level…. Well about 90% sure, it’s going to happen!
Like OMG, it will have around 1,355 metres of total ascent in around 70 miles! it will be hard, hard going… But I can’t wait!!
This will be my biggest cycling adventure since, doing the End to End cycle, way back in 2009! But BRING IT ON!!
Think it will be happening in the next two weeks! Will post more, when I know for sure!
After my last very big cycle adventure, which was cycling all the way from John O’ Groats to Land’s End, covering a distance of 990.30 miles over 16 days. Which was way, way back in 2009. Really think I’m long overdue another adventure.
Right now, my plain is to get a train up to York, then cycle from York to the Tan Hill Inn, which is the highest pub in Great Britain at 1732ft above sea level. A distance of around 70 miles, with an Elevation Gain of 4,509ft.
Then stay the night at the Tan Hill Inn! Then the following morning cycle to Settle, a distance of around 36 miles, with an Elevation Gain of 3,045ft. Where I could get the train back to Grantham.
That makes it sound very, very easy! Which of course, I know it will not be!
So what do you think of this idea? Please do let me know!
WOW! Where has the time gone? Three years ago today, Nick and myself climbed Ben Nevis, which is of course, the highest mountain in the British Isles! Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level. Still can’t believe that we both did it!!
I’ve walked so many canals in England over the last number of years! So far done the Erewash Canal, Grand Union Canal (main line), Grantham Canal, Northampton Arm (Grand Union Canal), Nottingham & Beeston Canal, Paddington Arm (Grand Union Canal) and Regent’s Canal.
Think so far, the Grand Union Canal (main line) has been my favourite! Mainly because, I can say I’ve walked the whole way from London to Birmingham.
Now in the process of walking the Kennet and Avon Canal and Leicester Line (Grand Union Canal).
The map below, shows all the canals and other walks, I’ve done since 6th October 2016. When I got my Garmin Vivoactive HR GPS smart watch.
